Since its inception in 2011 we are very proud to have awarded more than £150k to over 260 community groups \ organisations the length and breadth of the country. In addition to our average £500 application we have also been making made significant single donations from our Bursary to various charities since 2018, our largest being £13k for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland, £6k to Age Concern and various other worthwhile contributions to deserving groups.
Funding is provided to groups who can demonstrate they’re making a vital difference in their communities. There’s no lengthy application process, groups simply have to show us how they’re making life better for individuals and families.
