Groups stake claim in cash up to £1000
A popular community cash giveaway scheme has been extended for another year, the regional builder behind the initiative has announced.
Persimmon Homes West Scotland is urging community groups, charities and good causes in Rutherglen and Cambuslang to continue applying to its Community Champions scheme.
The fund was initially launched in March 2015 and was due to run for one year to support grassroots activities that improve the quality of life for local people.
The scheme invites local groups to bid for a share of the £24,000 regional fund, with two donations of up to £1000 being made locally every month on a match-funding basis.
Doug Law, managing director of Persimmon Homes West Scotland, said: “We hope our funding of £24,000 for the next 12 months can make a huge difference.” See www.persimmonhomes.com/charity
