Celebrating 100 editions

ANGUS Council’s external funding team is celebrating the issue of the 100th edition of their free monthly e-newsletter, Angus Funding News.

The publication, which started in September 2004, gives up-to-date information about new sources of external funding, changes to existing funds, and advises readers of forthcoming deadlines for applications.

The bulletin is distributed directly to over 700 email addresses, but as many of those on the list forward it to others, its reach is much wider, including readers from other areas of Scotland and as far south as Essex.

There was even a recent request from Benin in West Africa to be added to the distribution list, though the information in the bulletin is aimed primarily at Angus based community groups and charities seeking funding.

The external funding team estimates that Angus Funding News has covered more than 1,500 funds over the 100 issues, and most importantly, has helped local groups to access valuable funding.

Anyone wishing to be added to the distribution list should contact externalfunding@angus.gov.uk or phone Eddie Findlay on 01307 473264.
