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

in the area.

 

The charity was set up more than 25 years

because of a lack of things for them to do.

 

That is still the base on which the charity

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