Com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions in Ren­frew­shire are be­ing en­cour­aged to ap­ply for a Scot­land-wide com­mu­nity bur­sary scheme.

Prop­erty man­age­ment com­pany Ross and Lid­dell is of­fer­ing grants of up to £500 to groups that make a dif­fer­ence in their lo­cal area.

Irene Devenny, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at Ross and Lid­dell, said: “As a prop­erty man­age­ment com­pany with clients the length and breadth of the coun­try, it’s so im­por­tant for Ross and Lid­dell to play an ac­tive role in the com­mu­ni­ties it serves.

“To date, we have pro­vided sup­port to more than 130 groups across Scot­land and we con­tinue to be over­whelmed by the in­ter­est in the com­mu­nity bur­sary scheme.

“The fund­ing has a very pos­i­tive im­pact on groups and their com­mu­ni­ties, and we love to hear feed­back from or­gan­i­sa­tions on how the fund­ing has helped change lives.

“As we launch this year’s bur­sary, I would en­cour­age ev­ery­one in­volved with com­mu­nity groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions to ap­ply.

“We are look­ing for­ward to sup­port­ing more com­mu­nity groups over the com­ing year.”
