Charity deadline

LOCAL charities are being urged not to miss out on the opportunity to benefit from the new £100,000 Bank of Scotland Foundation volunteering grants programme.

The programme, aimed at boosting community volunteering, is designed to enhance the Foundation’s existing grants programme which has distributed over £2 million to over 450 charities since its launch in November 2010.

The volunteering programme is set to close for applications at 5 p.m. on Wednesday (August 15).
