A veteran’s charity in Dalkeith is better off to the tune of £10,500 thanks to two handouts.

The first, for £7,500, is from the Scottish Government, part of a £216,000 package to assist Scotland’s veteran charities.

This will go towards the provision of IT equipment at the Mark Wright Centre.

It will also enable the centre to redesign its website to allow better and improved access to job search and web based advice and information.

In a further boost, the charity has received a £3,000 Henry Duncan Award from the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland – a trust which makes donations to recognised charities in Scotland.
