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

ago by older people in the Cambuslang area

because of a lack of things for them to do.

 

That is still the base on which the charity

works today, and the National Lottery award

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