Midlothian groups’ delight over charity funds

A Penicuik charity is celebrating scooping £5,580.

Penicuik Community Sports and Leisure Foundation, which operates Ladywood Leisure Centre, has received the grant from the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland under its capacity building programme.

The foundation is one of four local organisations to receive support from the charity. The others include Partners in Advocacy, Loanhead After School Care Club and Lothian Autistic Society.

Foundation chairman Bill Fearnley said: “It is vital that our governance is effective and our financial controls sound and we anticipate that the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland grant will be central to furthering those objectives.”
