Jo congratulates local groups on lottery funding

East Dunbartonshire MP Jo Swinson has welcomed over £18,500 of Awards for All funding for two deserving local groups.

Killermont Primary School in Bearsden have been successful in applying for a £9,900 grant to develop their playground in order to provide pupils with more creative and physical play opportunities.


Events for Charities, a social enterprise in Bishopbriggs, will receive a £8,673 grant which will be put towardsa range of musical and radio workshops within the local community. 


Jo said:


“These grants are both richly deserved and I am glad to see that the money will be spent on projects that will benefit the development of local school pupils and also the cultural scene in East Dunbartonshire.” 



Notes to editors:

Awards For All grants from the Big Lottery Fund give groups a chance to apply for a grant of between £500 and £10,000 for projects that aim to help improve local communities and the lives of people most in need. We will fund a range of projects which involve bringing local people together, helping people learn, improving local spaces and getting people more active.
