TWO projects in Rosyth have been given a welcome cash boost after landing National Lottery funding.

Two grants of £10,000 have been awarded to the Rosyth Community Projects Limited for its work in the community.

The first sum will be used towards putting on the town's annual gala while the second will help an initiative aimed at helping the locals in the cost of living crisis.

It will see the expansion of the 'Bite & Blether' project which is as part of a warm space initiative to support struggling individuals.

Several organisations across Fife also benefitted from the latest Awards for All allocation.

Fife Gingerbread received £9,665 which will be used for an increased marketing and outreach to advertise their lone parent advice line for those who have never engaged with their services before and may be experiencing hardship due to the cost-of-living crisis.

It also received £10,000 to continue its Making it Work for Families project which is a support scheme for single parent, low income or unemployed families with a child in early secondary school who is struggling to engage or is 'at risk' of substance misuse.

The Fife Society for the Blind has received £4,870 for work to make their new office accessible for their clients and staff who are blind and visually impaired.
