MSPs WELCOMES CASH BOOST FOR COMRIE DEVELOPMENT TRUST
COMMONWEALTH GAMES LEGACY BENEFITTING COMMUNITY
Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Member of the Scottish Parliament for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire, and Ms Annabelle Ewing MSP, who represents Mid Scotland & Fife, have both given a warm welcome to new funding for the Comrie Development Trust (CDT) through a Scottish Government scheme.
This new funding comes as part of the Scottish Government’s Legacy 2014 Sustainable Sport for Communities Fund, designed to support sport-related social enterprises, enabling them to become sustainable in the long run and help people become more physically active. The award amounts to £15,000 to carry out a study into local sports and recreational needs.
Comrie’s constituency MSP, Ms Cunningham said:
“This investment is excellent news for the whole of Comrie and I congratulate CDT on their award, which will allow them to continue and expand the excellent work they are doing.
“Glasgow 2014 was an incredible spectacle – without a doubt the best Commonwealth Games ever which put Scotland on the map and this fund is a key part of ensuring that the whole of Scotland continues to benefit from the legacy of last summer’s games.”
Ms Ewing, a Comrie resident, added:
“Having worked for CDT in the past and as a resident of Comrie, I am delighted that the organisation is continuing to secure funds to progress and develop its range of local projects.
“This new investment shows the success of the Scottish Government in ensuring that the Games legacy continues to pay dividends in our community – and I am looking forward to seeing the positive impact the funding will make as CDT continues its good work.”
