Commenting, Brendan said:brendan_o'hara
“I’m delighted grassroots charities have been rightly recognised and are receiving these funds, enabling
them to continue their great work in our constituency. Many of the Henry Duncan grants go on staff and running costs like this, meaning they are a lifeline for local charities in this tough financial climate.”
Fiona Duncan, Chief Executive of Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland, added “We renamed our standard grants programme as the Henry Duncan Awards because we wanted to honour this great Scot whose actions ultimately led to the establishment of the Foundation. Today, we remain focused on funding local charities which aim to improve the quality of life for people who are disadvantaged. This and every year, we put nearly £1 million of funding into Scotland’s communities. We are proud of the difference we make.”
