The National Lottery Community Fund has awarded £10,000 to a project in Newry helping to support local people in these uncertain times. This funding is part of £2.1million to more than 30 projects across Northern Ireland.

Community Restorative Justice Newry/Armagh, based in Newry, is using the grant to purchase iPads for children and young people, aged 5-16, who live across south Armagh and do not have access to digital media. The project enables pupils to take part in online learning while at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kate Beggs, Northern Ireland Director of The National Lottery Community Fund said: “The wide range of projects funded today demonstrates the strength of their members and communities and the importance of staying connected with each other in these unprecedented times. It’s inspiring to see all these groups, staff and volunteers rising to the challenges of COVID-19 and looking to the future, supporting people in need.

"These awards, made possible by National Lottery players, recognise the incredible work happening across Northern Ireland. National Lottery players can be proud to know that money they raise is continuing to make such a difference.”

All National Lottery funded projects can contact their Funding Officer if they need advice or have any questions about their grant.
