The Scottish National Party’s Mr John Swinney MSP, Member of the Scottish Parliament for North Perthshire, and Mr Pete Wishart, Member of Parliament for Perth & North Perthshire, have welcomed the announcement that three organisations in their constituencies have received awards totalling £3,344 from Big Lottery Fund’s 2014 Communities programme.

Mr Swinney said:

“Well done to Fair City Rollers, Blairgowrie New Tennis Club and 3rd Perthshire Scone Scout Group who all successfully secured a significant cash boost from the Big Lottery Fund’s 2014 Communities programme.

“This additional funding will allow provision of new equipment and greater participation in sport which is a really positive outcome for these three groups and their Perthshire North communities.”

Mr Wishart added:

“This is excellent news for these local groups and I congratulate everyone involved in securing the funding.

“It is great to see the ongoing contribution from the Commonwealth Games benefiting grassroots involvement in a wide range of sports and activities.”
