Businesswoman Says She Wants To Give Something Back
£1m Lottery Cash On Its Way
At least £1m of Lottery cash is going to be given to Luton's Farley Hill area, to help improve the community.
Farley Hill's been named as one of the ‘forgotten’ pockets of the country set to be transformed through The Big Local Programme which will allocate at least £1 million of Lottery funding to 150 needy areas.
The programme is the National Lottery’s largest community-led regeneration project, and it will be local people who will decide how the money should be spent to improve their area over the next decade.
The Big Lottery Fund say Farley Hill has been previously overlooked for funding and investment. The area's been chosen this time because it suffers from high levels of deprivation, low life expectancy and high teenage pregnancy rates.
Local people will have to come together to do the best they can with their £1 million, which can be used on anything from training and employment schemes, to tackling anti-social behaviour, creating new community facilities or providing more activities for young people.
