Local MP & MSPs Encourage Residents to Vote for Moray Funding Bids

Moray’s local MP and two MSPs are encouraging residents to get behind funding bids from the region or the Bank of Scotland’s Community Fund.
The Bank of Scotland’s Community Fund provides grants to good causes in villages, towns and cities across Scotland and, from 23 September to 1 November, the public have the chance to vote for the local good cause that matters most to them.

In Moray four local charities have submitted bids for funding. The charities are:

Findhorn Village Centre, Findhorn, which aims to attract young people and their parents and help integrate newcomers to the community.

The Aila Coull Foundation, Elgin, which aims to fund research projects into the rare and aggressive childhood cancer Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.

The Sunshine Developmental Playgroup, Keith, which provides facilities for children with developmental delays or disorders in physical, developmental or behavioural terms.

Crossreach Counselling Moray, Buckie, which provides a free counselling service to young people and adults covering issues such as depression, bereavement, low self-esteem, abuse and many other difficulties.

Commenting Angus Robertson MP said:

“The Bank of Scotland’s Community Fund has provided a significant amount of support to good causes in communities across Scotland in recent years and the four good causes in Moray are all engaged in significant efforts to improve things for their community in a range of different ways.”

Moray MSP Richard Lochhead said:

“I would encourage people in Moray to get behind the local organisations that are bidding for funding in this year’s awards from the Bank of Scotland Community Fund. A fantastic amount of really beneficial work is being carried out in Moray by these groups and they are very deserving of their communities’ support in there funding bids.”

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson said(R):

“There is a great opportunity for communities to recognise the efforts of these local organisations by going onto the Bank of Scotland communities website and casting a vote for the cause that matters most to them and giving them the support they deserve.”
