Awards scheme open

Community projects in Aberdeenshire are invited to enter a national awards programme which could see them share a funding boost of £75,000.

Registered charities and not for profits are invited to enter their projects into the awards scheme under one of three categories: projects which help people to have a healthy relationship with money, projects which help people to improve their local environment and projects which help people into employment.

Five projects will be selected in each of the three categories and all 15 winners will be awarded £5,000 each.

For further information visit: or go into their local Clydesdale Bank branch to receive an application form.

The closing date for applications is Friday, April 8.
