A foundation set up to reduce gang culture in young people and a recycling charity are among 57 organisations across Barnet which shared a total of £1,471,937 of National Lottery funding last year.
North Finchley’s Kiyan Prince Foundation which was established by former professional boxer Mark Prince following the death of his son, who was stabbed outside school gates in Edgware in 2006, received £9,813.
And Larches Community, in Edgware, received £10,000, which the charity will use to recycle rubbish for use in art and craft activities for people with learning issues.
Meanwhile, from this week any organisation that has ever received National Lottery funding has the chance to gain nationwide acclaim in the National Lottery Awards 2017.
John Barrowman, the singer and presenter of the BBC’s National Lottery Awards show, said: “This is a fabulous celebration of the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects and rightly puts the focus on ordinary people doing extraordinary things whose efforts go such along way and are indeed changing lives.”
