Tourism event to meet the funders

Voluntary and community groups across Ayrshire and Arran can find out what money is up for grabs to help develop their organisation or run new projects.

Ayrshire and Arran Tourism have organised a ‘Meet the Funders’ event kindly supported by Ayrshire LEADER Local Action Group (LAG).

The event takes place on February 18, 2015 from 10am-4pm at the Local Action Hub, 6 Beresford Court, Beresford Lane, Ayr.

The day will be a drop-in session for group representatives to talk to local, regional and national funders about project ideas and whether they would be eligible to apply to their funding schemes.

Ayrshire LEADER, The Big Lottery Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund, Scottish Natural Heritage, External Funding advisors from North, East and South Ayrshire among others have confirmed their attendance.

This is an opportunity for representatives of groups to speak face to face with funders.
