WISHART URGES GROUPS TO APPLY FOR NEXT ROUND OF PERTH HARBOUR COMMUNITY FUND
Pete Wishart, MP for Perth and North Perthshire, is encouraging local organisations to apply for the Perth Harbour Community Fund, which opens today (1 February 2022). Organisations can apply for an award of up to £1,000.
Created to benefit the lives of people living in Perth and Kinross, the Fund was launched in 2021 and made eight awards to groups tackling poverty, stigma and shame, social inclusion, health and wellbeing. It also supported organisations that help people to become self-dependent and resilient.
The Buttons and Bows Baby Bank, Letham4All SCIO and The Perth Strathtay Harriers. This year, they will continue this trajectory by helping even more organisations, and I encourage all those eligible to apply.
“The River Tay is of huge importance to communities across my constituency and to Scotland as a whole, so I welcome the theme of this year’s initiative wholeheartedly.”
Also commenting, Cameron MacPhail, Head of Ports and Harbours for Perth Harbour operators David MacBrayne Limited (DML) said:
“The Perth Harbour Community Fund allows us to connect with our community in a unique and impactful manner. We are pleased to have supported eight organisations last year and hope to build on the Funds success this year by supporting groups who use the River Tay and its wonderful surroundings.”
