Organisations across East Dunbartonshire are celebrating this week after receiving Lottery windfalls.

Meanwhile Kirkintilloch High School and Turnbull High School have been given £5,154 and £3,661 respectively to purchase equipment for their Duke of Edinburgh Award schemes. Kirkintilloch High School will also run a dance course involving film-making and photography.
Kirkintilloch-based charity Ceartas, who support people with dementia and acquired brain injuries, will also benefit from a £10,000 grant.
The money will be used to carry out a feasibility study into expanding the organisation’s popular advocacy cafes - held regularly at Kirkintilloch Baptist Church.
Finally, East Dunbartonshire Council’s Children’s Residential Services have been handed a total of £4,850 for a new drama project.
