Hull has hit the jackpot in the latest Big Lottery Fund (BLF) awards.

The city’s TEFA Enterprises has secured £9,810 of funding from the BLF Awards For All’s kitty.

This will help go towards delivering services for Hull people who are not in work, education or training. These include interview planning, ICT training, health and safety awareness and writing seminars to equip them with the confidence and skills needed to get into paid work.

The ultimate objective is to lower Hull’s unemployment figures.

The TEFA Enterprises award is part of £858,596 – of the nationwide £7,780,882 funds – going to projects in the Humber and Yorkshire region.

England’s BLF deputy director, Lyn Cole said the awards will help Yorkshire communities improve via some “excellent” ongoing projects.

The BLF hands out £4 in every £10 of National Lottery-raised money. It invests over £670 million every year in schemes related to charity, education, environment and health.
