Rathmore Social Action Group has received €10,000 after claiming the Community Award at the National Lottery Good Causes Awards.

The Social Action Group was founded to give young people an opportunity to undertake community work and make a difference.

Since 1983, the Rathmore group has developed a care programme for older people; it includes the provision of social housing, a day care centre, meals on wheels and laundry service.

The awards honour the work and achievements of projects, clubs and individuals which positively impact their local communities.
