Local groups invited to apply for Bowhill funding
13th June, 2018
To celebrate VisitScotland’s Year of Young People, Bowhill House and Country Estate has launched a community bursary initiative with a focus on local youth groups and clubs.
The scheme will see more than £500 shared between community groups based in or around Selkirk which are in need of a financial boost – with this year’s funding earmarked for organisations which primarily work with, or benefit, local children.
Helen Currie, House and Events Manager at Bowhill House and Country Estate, said: “We are delighted to launch our community bursary fund and open applications to groups of all sizes in the local area.
“With 2018 being the Year of Young People, we felt it was a perfect fit to focus on the great youth organisations and groups locally in need of a financial boost.
“Community engagement is really important to us so we’re really looking forward to reading the applications and assisting groups that benefit the local area.”
The Estate team at Bowhill have made the application process as straightforward as possible to encourage groups to make submissions. For more information on the community bursary fund, or to request an application, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis following application. Applications must be submitted by 14th August 2018.
