JENNY GILRUTH MSP URGES PROJECTS IN MID FIFE AND GLENROTHES TO APPLY FOR SCOTLAND LOVES LOCAL FUND
Published date : 11 Aug 2021
Jenny Gilruth MSP has urged projects in Mid Fife and Glenrothes to apply for the newly launched Scotland Loves Local Fund.
The scheme has been launched by the SNP Scottish Government to support local projects run by organisations like town centre partnerships, chambers of commerce or community and charity trusts. It will provide projects with match funding of between £5,000 and £25,000.
Eligible projects could include things like community shops, marketing and digital schemes, or enabling larger construction projects delivery.
Commenting, Jenny Gilruth MSP said:
“The Scotland Loves Local Fund has been launched by the SNP Scottish Government as a way to help our town centres such as Mid Fife and Glenrothes recover from the devastating impact of the pandemic.
“Mid Fife and Glenrothes has a number of fantastic local community projects to stimulate growth and footfall into the area and this funding will allow them to continue to make our town centres a more vibrant place and stimulate the local economy.
“Not only is the funding important but when people shop locally and support local businesses it also boosts the economy here and ensure that money spent in the local area stays in the local area.
“Although several projects in Fife received funding from last year’s Scotland Loves Local Fund, no projects in Mid Fife and Glenrothes were funded. It is therefore all the more important that local projects take the opportunity to apply for this year’s fund.
“I would also like to thank people in Mid Fife and Glenrothes for continuing to support local business at every opportunity.”
