Graeme Dey, MSP for Angus South, has expressed his desire for local constituents to get on board ScotRail’s new £100,000 community fund launched on Wednesday.
The ScotRail Foundation distributes grants to groups that support children or young people – and/or improve the environment or general health of communities.
Communities that have or wish to have, a local station at the heart of their activities will be prioritised.
Welcoming the scheme, Mr Dey said: “This is fantastic news for Angus south and Scotland.
“I’m encouraging all good causes in my constituency to take advantage of this and make sure they don’t miss out on a potential cash windfall.”
Groups can apply for grants of between £250 and £5,000. For information visit www.scotrail.co.uk/betterwaytobe. Groups interested in applying to the fund should contact Foundation Scotland on 0141 341 4960 or visit www.foundationscotland.org.uk/
