Housebuilder launches community bursary fund in Scotland

Previous organisation to benefit include Aberdeenshire Sailing Trust

HOUSEBUILDER CALA Homes has launched a £45,000 community bursary to help fund worthwhile causes across Scotland.

Charities, schools, community groups and good causes from in and around the areas in which CALA builds have been invited to apply for a share of the funding.

The initiative is now in its fourth year across the west and east of Scotland, and fifth year in the north, and has supported more than 200 causes during that time.

Jim McIntyre, MD at CALA Homes (West) said, “CALA is committed to making a positive and lasting contribution to communities and we’re delighted to launch our Bursary initiative in Scotland once again. We look forward to hearing from an even wider breadth of local charities and good causes, and discovering not only the vital difference they make to the community, but also how we can support, sustain and amplify the great work that is being done.”

Those interested can apply for a share of the fund by completing an application form at Applications close on Friday 6th March 2020. This year the community bursary is available in the following regions: East Lothian, Midlothian, City of Edinburgh, West Lothian, Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Glasgow, Falkirk and East Dunbartonshire.
