A new charitable fund has been set up in the Moorfoot Community Council area. Local groups are being urged to come forward with projects that will foster community cohesion and benefit people living in the Moorfoot area. The 25 year fund – provided by SSE’s Carcant Wind Farm Fund – is worth approximately £4,600 a year.
Grants of between £200 and £1,000 are available. Decisions on how the funds will be allocated will be made by the local advisory panel of four representatives from the community council and a representative from each of the three village halls in the area. The panel is scheduled to meet in April to consider applications received in the first round.
The deadline for the first round of applications is Tuesday 1 March 2011. The application process is being handled by the Scottish Community Foundation. To request an application form, or find out more about the fund, please contact Annabel Bath on 0131 524 0306 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
