Newly revealed figures show that more than £1.8 million of National Lottery funding was given out across South Norfolk last year.

In Mid Suffolk the figure was £760,000 and in Breckland £1.4 million. The grants boosted arts, sports and heritage projects alongside community groups helping those most in need.

Projects which received grants last year included:

nCarleton Rode Jubilee Hall, £10,000 to improve facilities

n Mulbarton Parish Council, £8,909 for picnic tables and children’s play equipment.

n Mendlesham Football Club, £1,400 for portable floodlights.

n 1st Debenham Scout Group, £9,854 for secure storage of their camping equipment.

n Horham and Athelington Village Hall, £3,149 to put on weekly IT courses for older people.

n St Mary’s Church, Kenninghall, £183,900 for urgent repairs.

n Banham Parochial Council, £217,400 for St Mary’s Church restoration project,

n ZSEA, Banham, £10,000 to deliver a workskills training and a volunteer programme at its wildlife park.

These groups, or any organisation that has ever received National Lottery funding, now have the chance of a further prize by entering the National Lottery Awards 2016. Award winners will receive a £3,000 prize at a glittering ceremony broadcast on BBC One in October.

Actor-presenter John Barrowman, presenter of last year’s awards show, said: “The National Lottery Awards offer an unmissable opportunity to give outstanding projects their time to shine. If you can think of a great Lottery-funded project, please nominate them for an award.”

To nominate a project in this year’s awards, tweet @LottoGoodCauses with your suggestions or call 0207 293 3599. Entries must be received by midnight on May 9.
