Prize for grant organisations in Keighley

First published in Keighley

More than £300,000 of lottery funding was invested in Keighley last year, new figures show.

A total of 15 grants were awarded to groups across the district.

Beneficiaries included Haworth Riding for the Disabled, which received £10,000 for a riding simulator; Keyhouse, which was awarded £9,950 to provide more support to the homeless, and Ingrow Primary School, whose £9,970 grant was to fund a series of out-of-school activities.

Now those projects and others could be in line for national recognition and a £2,000 cash prize. Organisations that have received funding in the past year can be entered in the National Lottery Awards.

A spokesman said: “Lottery players raise £33 million every week for a wide range of projects which make a life-changing difference to local communities.

“The awards are a great way of celebrating their work, and the unsung heroes helping people with lottery funding.”

Visit nationallotteryawards.org.uk or call 0207 293 3599 for further information and to submit a nomination. The deadline is March 12.
