Roseanna Cunningham MSP has welcomed the news that two organisations from opposite ends of her constituency have recently been successful in securing lottery funding totalling £6,430.
Ms Cunningham said:
"Many community groups from throughout my constituency have received lottery funding from various sources through the years and I was pleased to learn this week that two more organisations - representing communities at either end of the constituency - have been successful in securing support for their projects.
"St Fillans Community Council has been awarded £1,530 which I understand will go towards staging a community musical event about which I look forward to finding out more detail.
"Meanwhile, the Michael Bruce Memorial Trust, who maintain a small museum in Kinnesswood, have received nearly £5000 towards celebrations marking the 250th anniversary of local Kinross-shire poet Michael Bruce and his work with the local community.
"Congratulations to all who have been involved in securing this funding and I hope to be able to see for myself some of the fruits of their labours."
