Charity funding appeal

Local charities are being invited to get involved in a face to face chat about funding opportunities with Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland.

A Skype-based advice surgery will be held on Wednesday, April 2 and the Foundation is keen to hear from charities which benefit disadvantaged people in our society and are looking for funding.

Mary Craig OBE, the Foundation’s Chief Executive, said: “Our next deadline for applications is May 19, so this is the perfect opportunity for groups to getsome face to face advice plenty of time before they apply.

“We’ll be able to make sure charities understand our application process as well as providing tailored advice about how each charity’s work might fit with the type of work we fund.”

One-to-one appointments can be made by calling 0131 444 4020.
