We use this money to make grants of up to £300 to local groups.  We’ve just made our first four awards, to Nenthead Play Area Association, Alston Community Coffee Morning (formerly Age UK), Alston Moor Community Energy (towards the installation of solar panels on Alston Moor Federation School in Alston) and Nenthead Community Shop.  Congratulations to all four of them and we’re delighted to be able to support them in this way.  If you’re not yet playing the Unity Lottery, and would like to support local good causes in this way, please go to https://www.alstonmoorpartnership.co.uk/lottery/ and sign up.  We welcome more applications for grants, too, as we have some money left in the fund currently and there will be more!!  There’s information on our website.
