darts celebrates after receiving £199,070 in National Lottery funding

darts - Doncaster's participatory arts charity - is celebrating today after being awarded £199,070 in funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK.


darts will use the funding to deliver a further three years of Creative Directions - a much - needed weekly group that improves mental health and wellbeing in adults. The Reaching Communities funding will pay for artists to deliver creative sessions at The Point in central Doncaster and in Edlington.


The groups are friendly, welcoming and inclusive - if people are unsure about attending, they can have a chat with a member of staff about what to expect. People are encouraged to come along and have a go - even if they don't feel able to stay for the full session at first.


Dr Elanor Stannage - the Project Manager for Creative Directions says: "Thanks to National Lottery players, this grant means that we can continue to run sessions that build confidence, improve and maintain mental health and wellbeing, and provide opportunities for people to meet people, make connections and build new friendships. This will make a big difference to people's lives."


To find out more about Creative Directions, please contact Amy on 01 302 493991 or amy@wearedarts.org.uk To find out when the sessions take place, keep an eye on https://thepoint.org.uk/whats-on/


National Lottery players raise over £30 million a week for good causes across the UK. The National Lottery Community Fund distributes a share of this to projects to support people and communities to prosper and thrive. 


During the pandemic, in 2020 alone, The National Lottery Community Fund distributed almost £1 billion to charities and community organisations across the UK.
