Lanark Amateur Musical Society have received a grant of £10,000 from the Border Biscuits Community Support Fund. The funds will be used to support the next three years of full-scale musical productions, plus redevelopment of the LAMS website and a contribution towards the LAMS ’40 years of song’ 40th anniversary celebration concert this autumn.
Vikki McIntyre, Club President, commented: “We’re delighted to receive this vital support from Border Biscuits. Over the past 40 years, our group has performed a variety of full-scale musical productions in Lanark Memorial Hall, enjoyed by thousands of people within the local community. We currently have around 40 members, varying in ages from 14 to 80. We pride ourselves on being an open and accessible group, welcoming to everyone in the community who wishes to join our cast.”
Tina Cunningham, Border Biscuits Community Support Director, said: “Following the fantastic success of last year’s CHICAGO performance at Lanark Memorial Hall, we are delighted to renew our support for Lanark Amateur Musical Society for another three years. At Border Biscuits Community Support, our focus is on supporting projects that benefit the people of Lanark or the town of Lanark as a whole and we’re excited to continue that support for Lanark Amateur Musical Society during its 40th anniversary celebrations and beyond.”
