“I am delighted that Veterans Minister Keith Brown has announced this extra provision for helping veterans across the country and more specifically welcome the announcement of funds to Glasgow’s Helping Heroes.

“Mr Brown and I recently visited Cathcart Old Parish Church in my constituency who do lots of work to support veterans and where more is planned for the future.  I am absolutely thrilled that this money has been awarded to Glasgow’s Helping Heroes who are doing fantastic work across the city with veterans and their families”
