Lottery award helps LEAP continue its leisure and learning programme
Lanarkshire Charity LEAP has secured
more than £47,000 funding for its Leisure
and Learning programme for older people

The charity was set up more than 25 years

from The National Lottery Community Fund, totalling £47,140, will allow it to continue its activity programme for a further two years.
