Here come the girls: Scottish communities score thanks to 2014 Communities

January 24, 2012

Grassroots women’s and girls’ football is just one of many sports being boosted as 121 grants worth £192,487 are made to a wide range of local sporting projects across the country thanks to 2014 Communities.

 Created to support sporting activity in the run up to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, 2014 Communities is today funding projects that introduce Scots of all ages to a wide range of activities and healthier lifestyles. Big Lottery Fund Scotland Committee Chair, Maureen McGinn, said: “2014 Communities is about building a legacy of well-being across Scotland in the lead up to, and beyond, the Commonwealth Games.

 “With this latest group of awards, it’s encouraging to see that several projects involve women’s football, helping women of all ages to get active, become involved and join a local team in their school or community. That’s the essence of the 2014 Communities programme – supporting people to explore their potential through physical activity and bringing communities together through the twin tracks of sport and volunteering.”
