Doncaster MBC has become one of the first councils in the country to employ a full-time national lottery co-ordinator.

Sam Tarff, who was previously sports development manager for St Helens MBC, began his new job last week. He will earn around £20,000 a year in his efforts to help the council and local voluntary organisations attract as much money from the lottery as possible.

Mr Tarff said his role would be to advise departments or bodies which intended to bid for money on whether their application was adequate and matched the criteria set out by the lottery's distribution agencies.

'I had 25 people who came to see me in my first week,' Mr Tarff said.

He said he had not been set any targets on how much he would be expected to help bring in - and that it would be impossible to estimate until he could gauge how many organisations would bid for money and how big their projects were.

Mr Tarff has a three-year contract which will be reviewed after one year.
