Lotto workshop for south

COMMUNITY groups are being invited to attend a Big Lottery event in Eastwood House on June 20.

The key topic for discussion will be the disclosure of which type of projects the Big Lottery will be funding over the coming year.

East Renfrewshire councillors Mary Montague and Tony Buchanan are keen for community groups to get involved.

Communities convenor Mary Montague said: “This is a great opportunity for community groups to get funding to further their projects and organise events”.

Tony Buchanan, convenor for economic development, added: “As part of East Renfrewshire’s A Place To Grow campaign, our events teams have also put together toolkits to help support community groups in organising their own events and how to promote them too.

“This is ideal for Business Improvement Districts as well as community groups”.

To find out if your group event or community group can apply for funding, head along to one of the two sessions (10am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-4pm).

Remember to register for Big Info at or call 0141 242 1400.

Two further workshops are being planned for the end of August in Giffnock and Barrhead.
