CALA HOMES’ (WEST) LAUNCHES £15K COMMUNITY BURSARY SCHEME
Wednesday, 05 April 2017
CALA Homes (West) has today launched a £15,000 community bursary initiative across the West of Scotland in a bid to help charities and organisations within the local communities it is building.
The luxury homebuilder is inviting local charities, community groups and organisations to apply for a share of the bursary across three specific regions within the area to help fund a project which makes a vital difference in and around the local community. CALA hopes to use the sum to help as many local groups as possible.
The fund has been split into three regions with Lanarkshire, Glasgow and East Dunbartonshire each receiving a £5,000 allocation from the total funds.
For more information or to view and download the application, visit www.cala.co.uk/bursary. Alternatively application forms can be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and must be submitted by Friday 9th June.
Applicants must state the amount they would like to secure and what the money will be used for to be in with a chance of receiving funding. Applications will be judged by a panel from CALA Homes (West).
Successful applicants will be announced July 2017 onwards.
Liana Canavan, Sales and Marketing Director for CALA Homes (West), said: “We strongly believe that we are not just building houses, we are building homes that belong to a wider community and it is our intention through the launch of the community bursary that we can help make a difference in some of the key areas in which we are currently developing.
“The £15,000 fund has the opportunity to help lots of local organisations and charities do good within the community so we are looking forward to helping as many as we can throughout the coming months.
“We would like to welcome all charities, groups and organisations in the areas that could benefit from our assistance to complete the application form by 9th June.”
CALA Homes (West) currently has nine developments across the West of Scotland including The Lawns at Thorntonhall, CALA at Kilmardinny in Bearsden and Nerston View, Nerston in East Kilbride.
