Following the most recent Pencaitland Community Council meeting in Trevelyan Hall, it was agreed to give financial support to a number of local groups.
Amongst those receiving funds this year are Pencaitland’s new Scouts, Rainbows, Brownies, Playgroup, the Day Centre, the Bowling Club and the Boggs Association. Additionally, this year the Community Council gave support to the Moyra McNeil Fund which hopes to raise sufficient cash to develop a large soft play for young kids in the Loch Centre, Tranent.
The funds will help to partially pay for the use of buildings, buy much needed new equipment and contribute towards repairs and other running costs many groups must meet in order to operate.
Many local community groups struggle to make ends meet financially and rely heavily on the goodwill and generosity of those who give up their time to keep things going, or to help fundraise. In a small way it’s hoped that this year’s modest contributions from your Community Council, will ensure that the good work carried out by local groups will continue… for many years to come.
