Local Groups to Receive Community Cash – Still Some Money Available

Posted on: February 8th, 2018
A number of Portobello groups and organisations have been recommended to receive funding as part of the You Decide 2018 community grants process.

Bidding groups receiving approval from the Portobello and Craigmillar Neighbourhood Partnership include Joppa Tennis Courts – £500 to purchase a defibrillator;  Tribe Porty Youth Theatre Film project – £500 to produce 4-minute short films with young people; Beach Wheelchairs – £500 to purchase a ramp and a portable hoist so users can move more easily from their wheelchairs to the beach wheelchair and Coillesdene Complex Neighbourhood Association – £500 to buy a television for the community room at the Coillesdene Complex Sheltered Housing area.

Full details of the funding awards are attached below.

There is still a small amount of money available for Portobello and Craigmillar constituted groups with a good idea about an event or a project that will benefit their community to apply for.

There are two options available.  Groups can bid for up to £1,500.00, or make a smaller bid of up to £500.00 for example to buy a piece of equipment the group needs.

Applications for the remaining funds will close on Friday, 16th February 2018.
