Lottery funding helps impaired ice skaters in Cannock

As the National Lottery celebrates its 18th birthday this week, an ice skating project that helps children with physical and learning difficulties is among West Midlands groups to receive a present of their own.

The Big Lottery Fund, which distributes lottery good causes money, has awarded Cannock International Ice Skating club a grant of £9,850 to expand their project for impaired young skaters.
