£5,000 grant

ARBROATH-based Starter Packs Angus has been awarded a grant of £5,000 by Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland.

The body helps people by providing basic household and personal care items when they secure a place to live.

And a £25,000 rescue package is being prepared by Angus Council. Starter Packs have funding difficulties, but councillors were due to rule yesterday (Thursday) on a plan to give them a five-figure lifeline.
