Grants boosts for local organisations from the National Lottery have been welcomed by Upper Bann MLA Sam Gardiner MLA.

He said: “I was pleased to hear that local organisations received much needed funding. Iveagh Branch of the Pony Club is to receive £10,000 to buy lighting for their arena. Banbridge VIP club is to receive £10,000 to support a respite trip to Scotland and tandem riding. The Ted Clarke Memorial Trust is to get £8,850 for essential skills courses and wellbeing training.

“These grants are a boost for many deserving organisations in Upper Bann and, as MLA, I welcome the difference they will make to those organisations.”
