VOLUNTARY groups in East Lothian are to scoop more than £800,000 in council funding, it has been announced.

A range of bodies are to share in the windfall, though all deliver projects that support community wellbeing.

Councillor Ruth Currie, cabinet member for Community Wellbeing, said: “I’m sure this year, as always, the varied groups who have been given awards will continue to put these funds to good use, to the benefit of a wide range of East Lothian residents.”

Recipient organisations include: the Lothian Disability Badminton Club, East Lothian Talented Athlete Fund, Dunbar Arts Trust, Lamp of Lothian Trust, Music in Hospitals, Anti Bullying East Lothian, Carefree Kids, Fisherrow Visually Impaired Group and Muirfield Riding Therapy.
