A KILSYTH support group for people with disabilities are to have their first outing for four years after celebrating something of a lottery windfall.

The Kilsyth Blind and Disabled Club have secured a whopping £3945 grant from the Big Lottery Fund, after receiving help from local charity funding expert John Cullen.

Treasurer of the organisation, Ann Marie Montgomery, says they couldn’t have done it without the former councillor’s help.

She said: “To make your application successful there are so many things you have to get right. John was really good to us and spent a lot of time making sure we gave all the information we had to.”
