The Grow Kids, Cook Kids project run by Peebles Community Action Network is among the winners, and will receive £49,844 to expand on their Grow Kids projects.

They provide fun, hands on sessions for parents and children on how to grow their own food. They will also develop a new Cook Kids programme where parents and children will work together with a chef to learn how to use the vegetables to cook healthy, affordable meals.

The Big Lottery Fund teamed up with ITV and The National Lottery to give the UK public the chance to decide how £3 million of funding could make a difference in their local area.

Across the UK, 95 projects were shortlisted.
