Urras nan Tursachan has announced a new  community-giving scheme opening for applications at 9am on Monday 3 October.

If you are in the Lochganvich to Dalmore area, your community group or good cause could receive a £200 grant.

As part of our commitment to supporting and enabling community activities Urras nan Tursachan is creating a fund by allocating 1% of all sales in the Calanais Visitor Centre café and shop.

The more sales, the quicker the fund will grow, therefore increasing the rate of grants given and groups assisted. At a time of financial constraints and fewer funding opportunities, we hope this will assist many aspects of our community.

You do not need to be a constituted group, and there is no grant report needed other than photos of the good work enabled by the funding, so any good local cause could be assisted by this fund.

Applications and more information are online via Survey Monkey 

and awards will be allocated as soon as each £200 mark is reached.

DJ Macleod the Engagement Officer for the Urras nan Tursachan said: “it's an easy to access grant, with a quick turnaround and very local, it is exactly what the community needs”.

Caroline Maclennan, Director of Urras nan Tursachan added: “£200 is a good amount that can make a big difference to a community group or a good cause and we are delighted to be able to use some of the proceeds from the Visitor Centre to support our community.

"We hope to be able to issue the first few grants in October”
