Over the past 3 years, £93,000 has been awarded to 50 Community projects across the Barrhead Community, through 3 Community Voting Events, with over 1,500 community members voting on the projects to be funded. Our most recent Community Fund event was held in March 2022, with the National Lottery Community Fund contributing funding for the 1st time for such an event in Scotland.
We are delighted to announce that the success of this initiative has now been recognised at a UK level, with the Association being shortlisted in the category Neighbourhood Transformation at the Aico|HomeLINK Community Awards 2022. The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on Thursday 12th May, at the ICC Birmingham.
Congratulations, and thanks, to all those involved in the Community Fund Events over the past 3 years.
