Grant applications to the Eilidh MacLeod Memorial Trust are now open to young musicians across Scotland.

The cut-off point is midnight on Tuesday, April 30.

The small grants charity, established in memory of Eilidh MacLeod, the Barra teenager who died in the 2017 Manchester Arena attack, accepts applications from musicians of all genres and disciplines.

The trust aims to help groups and individuals develop music tuition capacity and ensure that lessons remain available to all. Trust support is offered to help young musicians grow their abilities and confidence as performers.

Trust founder Suzanne White said: “We want to hear from musicians and groups across the length and breadth of Scotland that feel they need some financial support. So far, we have made over 60 grant payments to a wide variety of groups and individuals, from singers, choirs and pipe bands to orchestras and brass bands. 

“We are proud of the positive impact our funding is already having on young musicians across the country, and we’re looking forward to seeing the success it continues to have in Eilidh’s memory.”

Applications can be submitted via the Eilidh’s Trust website.
