CLUBS and good causes around Stirling are being urged to apply for a funding pot from a housing association.

The £10,000 Cairn Community Fund is open with the aim of providing support for a wide range of organisations and projects.

Jason MacGilp, chief executive of Cairn Housing Association, said: “We’re totally committed to investing in communities across Scotland and helping to make them better places.

“We recognise that each community we work in across Scotland in unique which is why the funding is open to a host of different initiatives.

“If you have an idea of how the Cairn Community Fund could help you or your organisation, I would urge you to get in touch with us as we’re always proud to play our part in getting projects off the ground.”

Grants of up to £1,000 are available and can be spent on a number of things including the buying or hiring of equipment, training courses and paying for venues or catering at community events.
