Perthshire North MSP, Mr John Swinney, has today welcomed news that five organisations within his constituency have been successful in applying for National Lottery funding.

The groups – Perth and Kinross Association of Voluntary Service, Highland Perthshire Cycling Group, Alyth Arts and Crafts Guild, Perth and Kinross Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Association and Wild Sparks Outdoor Play CIC, have received funding totalling £35,372.

Commenting, Mr Swinney said:

“I am delighted that these worthwhile organisations are to receive funding. Each of these organisations play an important role in providing opportunities for their local community and I am sure that they will put their awards to good use.
