Primetime bid for curling funds unsuccessful

Kelso's bid for funding for their Time to Curl project has been unsuccessful. In tonight's Primetime programme on BBC Scotland, it was announced that Enable Scotland's ‘Lifelong Carers’ project, which will support over 50s who are caring for relatives with learning disabilities, had won last week's heat and will get a share of the Big Lottery funding available.

The Border Curling Development Group will get nothing.

Those involved will be disappointed. A huge effort was put in by all the team.

However all may not be lost. I understand that all the failed bids will now go forward to be assessed against existing Big Lottery Projects, and it may be that funding will be made available down the line.

What can one say to those involved but, "Well played!"
