Provost’s Charity Fund boost

IT’S good news for charities and voluntary organisations in the area as the Provost’s Charity Fund plans to allocate more funds to them directly in the future.

The fund is currently operated as a lottery but due to changes in national lottery laws the council needed to review the way it worked.

It will be renamed EDC Lottery Society.

Council leader Rhondda Geekie said: “We will extend the fund to include raising money for local voluntary organisations whose work directly benefits the residents of East Dunbartonshire.”
