Newly revealed figures show that more than £172,000 of National Lottery funding was awarded across Angus last year alone.
19 Lottery grants were given out in Angus during 2015; providing a vital boost to arts, sports and heritage projects alongside community groups helping those most in need.
From today any organisation that has ever received National Lottery funding, have the possibility of gaining nationwide acclaim by entering The National Lottery Awards 2016.
National Lottery Awards winners will receive a £3,000 cash prize and national recognition at a glittering ceremony broadcast on BBC One in October.
John Barrowman, presenter of last year’s National Lottery Awards show, said: “The National Lottery Awards offer an unmissable opportunity to give outstanding projects their time to shine. If you can think of a great Lottery-funded project, please nominate them for an Award.
“All these fantastic projects are funded by National Lottery players - every one of you should feel proud to raise an astounding £34 million a week, which provides much needed support to such life-changing work.”
National Lottery Awards are given across seven categories; Sport, Heritage, Arts, Environment, Health, Education and Voluntary/Charity, to reflect the range of funding that the Lottery gives out.
