Buckhind Players got £ 10,000 to continue their adult theater troupe and start a youth group, and the Fife Center for Equalities £ 80,441 to provide a range of services to older people from ethnic minorities,

Nina Munday, Chief Executive Officer, said: “At the onset of the pandemic, we identified that information and support was not reaching older people from an ethnic minority living in Fife.

“This is because the volunteer-run lunch clubs could not take place due to restrictions.
