The cash allowed £4000 to be distributed to charities and organisations in and around Arbroath.

The following groups received £500 each: Arbroath Cliff Trail, Arbroath Harp, Arbroath Litter Pickers and Poo Fighters, Arbroath Men’s Shed, Friockheim Park Community Volunteers, Hear Me Angus, Home Start Angus and the Hope Organic Garden.

Seagreen established its community benefit fund to support communities located in parts of Dundee and Angus which have some impact from construction of the offshore windfarm project.

Areas of benefit include the Carnoustie, Tealing, Murroes & Wellbank, Arbroath, Montrose and Ferryden & Craig community council areas. A total of £1.8m will be invested in local projects over the next few years.
