Clydesdale MSP Aileen Campbell has welcomed grants made to local charities in her constituency by the Corra Foundation.

During the year it has awarded Clydesdale Riding for the Disabled Association a grant of £4,500 towards the salary of the part-time lead coach. And Lanarkshire Epilepsy Support Group has been awarded £3,000 towards the salary of the sessional co-ordinator.

Each year, the foundation – formerly the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland - distributes almost £1 million through its Henry Duncan Grants programme to grassroots charities working in their local communities.

“These awards show how Corra Foundation continues to be at the heart of funding local communities,” said Aileen.

“I’m delighted these grassroots charities are receiving these funds, enabling them to continue their great work in my constituency.

“Many of the Henry Duncan Grants go on staff and running costs like this, meaning they are a lifeline for local charities in this tough financial climate.”

Foundation Chief Executive Fiona Duncan added “Corra Foundation is privileged to be able to contribute to the work of local groups across Scotland, supporting them as they make a real difference in the lives of many people, including vulnerable children and young people, isolated older people, unpaid carers, families experiencing poverty and people affected by disability or mental health issues.

“We are committed to our vision of a society in which people create positive change and enjoy fulfilling lives and distributing £1m a year via the Henry Duncan Grants is part of this.”

The foundation has six funding rounds each year, and the deadline for applications for the next round is January 22.
