The Oban Times - - News -

GROUPS across Ar­gyll and Bute and Lochaber that aim to change their com­mu­ni­ties for the bet­ter are be­ing sought for grant fund­ing from Esh Border Con­struc­tion, part of Esh Group.

The Esh Com­mu­ni­ties scheme of­fers or­gan­i­sa­tions of all shapes and sizes grant fund­ing of up to £1,000.

Groups that can demon­strate their ideas are aligned with at least one of Esh Group’s core val­ues are en­cour­aged to ap­ply for the fund­ing.

Those core val­ues are: to im­prove the qual­ity of life for lo­cal res­i­dents, to sup­port dis­ad­van­taged or vul­ner­a­ble com­mu­ni­ties, to in­crease prospects of be­com­ing em­ployed, and pro­mot­ing equal­ity by en­gag­ing mi­nor­ity and hard-to-reach groups.

Groups should ap­ply be­fore the clos­ing date on Jan­uary 27 via the Esh Group web­site www. es­h­group.co.uk.
