Lottery Funding for Clare groups

Projects and organisations in Clare are to receive funding totalling €80,530 from National Lottery grants.

Acquired Brian Injury Ireland (formerly The Peter Bradley Foundation) is set to receive €20,000 towards the cost of purchasing a transport vehicle. Kilmaley Daycare Centre has been allocated €25,000 towards the cost of purchasing a replacement bus.

Rehabcare Ennis has been awarded €18,000 to go towards purchasing a wheelchair-accessible bus, while the Irish Red Cross Clare Area Committee is to receive €10,000 to be used towards funding the cost of a support vehicle or ambulance.

In Ennistymon, the North West Clare Family Resource Centre has been given €4,960 to develop a men’s shed project. Arthritis Ireland will receive €25,700, which will go towards funding weekly Tai Chi classes in Newmarket-on-Fergus.

Fine Gael Deputy Joe Carey said the grants allocated by the Minister for Health, Leo Varadkar, will make a big difference.

“National Lottery funding is allocated to groups and organisations involved in the provision of health and personal services. This funding is of extreme importance and will make a real difference to service-users lives, while also positively impacting on the level of support groups can provide.”
