Martyn Day MP for Linlithgow and and East Falkirk encourages his community to look to the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The fund is offering grants of between £3,000 and £5m to successful projects.The programme –which runs until April 2022 – typically hands out between £200m and £300m a year and Mr Day said it was an opportunity “not to be missed”.

The SNP MP said: "We know that there are many charities already doing fantastic work across the constituency, but I have no doubt that for many this additional funding would be most welcomed.

"I encourage as many local charities as possible to apply."

This year’s scheme is hoping to boost local economies, improve people’s wellbeing as well as making local areas better places to live, work and visit.

Projects must enable a wider range of people to be involved in heritage and must demonstrate that they are environmentally responsible.
