Local charities, schools, community projects and good causes across Renfrewshire could receive a share of £5,000 thanks to CALA Homes’ 2019 Community Bursary.
The initiative, which is now in its third year, aims to provide support for a wide range of organisations and projects within the communities in which CALA builds. Since its launch, over 200 good causes across the country have received a share of more than £200,000.
Jim McIntyre, Managing Director at CALA Homes (West) said: “We’re thrilled to be continuing with our Community Bursary in Renfrewshire, and are looking forward to hearing from even more local charities, schools, community projects and good causes in the area and finding about the great work being done.
“CALA has always been committed to making a positive and lasting contribution to local communities through an active programme of local charity donations, community support and sponsorship, and the Community Bursary scheme gives us the chance to find out exactly what support is needed locally.
“Charities in Renfrewshire have previously benefitted from the CALA Community Bursary scheme with donations made for projects ranging from Erskine Reid McEwan Activity Centre to young people’s charity Kibble. The Bursary provides an opportunity for charities and groups of all sizes to apply for funds, and we look forward to hearing more about how we can get involved.”
