RL club’s lottery cash
Published at 19:31, Thursday, 11 December 2008
A BROUGHTON rugby club has been awarded £9,525.
Broughton Red Rose’s project 93 was awarded the money from Lottery grants. It was awarded the money three weeks ago but the funding was only announced this week.
The amateur rugby group intends to use the money to install a new boiler and showers at the club on Papcastle Road.
Secretary Peter Byrom, 58 said: “It’s fantastic we’ve been awarded this money so we can upgrade our facilities at the club.
“It’s brilliant that the lottery are giving grants to groups in West Cumbria.”
Lottery grants for local groups have distributed a total of £718,656 to 96 groups across the North West in this latest round of awards.
Michelle McNamee, head of the North West region for the Big Lottery Fund, said: “It’s fantastic to announce that nearly 100 North West groups are awarded Lottery grants this month, each sharing in over £700,000.”
