Making a difference with the Scottish Children's Lottery

Gorbals charity Bridging the Gap has been awarded £25,645 from Chance to Study and £12,686 from Chance to Flourish which are charities supported by the Scottish Children's Lottery.

That's a whopping £38,331 to continue to support the charity’s baby and toddler groups in the Gorbals area, helping to fund toys, healthy food and messy play activities for pre-school children and their parents and carers.

The funding will also help support the charity's youth work programmes in local schools, helping young people become more confident, responsible and successful at a vital stage of their lives. The programme allows for S4 pupils to act as positive role models and mentors to children in P7, who are making the challenging transition from primary to secondary school.

Tricia McConalogue, Director of Bridging the Gap, said:

“Bridging the Gap is delighted and very grateful to receive this grant from the Scottish Children’s Lottery, which will support our ongoing work to offer opportunities and positive experiences for pre-school children and young people before they go to nursery and secondary school. The grant came at a time when Bridging the Gap was struggling for funding - a big thanks to Scottish Children’s Lottery.”
