Town Top Of Region's Lotto Cash
17 Oct 2006
A Shropshire town has qualified for more lottery funding than anywhere else in the West Midlands, figures show.
Bridgnorth attracted more than £20m between 1995 and 2005, which equates to £437.29 per head of population.
That is 12% more than Warwick and Birmingham, the authorities in second and third place, according to the Lottery Monitor figures.
Bridgnorth District Council has had grants for 243 projects, including a new Cold War exhibition at RAF Cosford.
The town is 43rd in the top 50 areas nationally.
Ben Walker, the council's external funding officer, said: "This is great news for the district and all the good causes that have benefited from lottery funding over the past decade."
