LEADER GRANT APPROVED 4th JULY 2012
We have now taken a major step closer to our target with the approval of a grant from the LEADER program of £35,000. A final application for funding was made to the Lottery ‘Awards for All’ program and a decision will be forthcoming on or around 16th July.
The total cost of the Camping Pod project stands at around £70,000 and the funding from public bodies which is now approved will come from The LEADER program £35,000 , CnES ‘Tourism in the Community Fund’ ( £20,000), Communn na Gaidhlig (£2,000) plus the anticipated ‘Awards for All’ (£10,000) . A private contribution from Urras Tac Chalanais will fill the remaining funding gap and this has partly come from a £500 award from the COOP plus generous donations by Breasclete Community Association and Breasclete Community Council .
We keep plodding (or podding) on!
