Clydesdale‘s Spirit of the Community

There’s still time for community groups in the Borders to enter the Clydesdale Bank’s Spirit of the Community Awards and secure their share of a funding boost of £75,000.

Community groups in the Borders could receive a share of £75,000 by entering the initiative. Clydesdale Bank will make donations to registered charities and not-for-profit organisations in each of the three categories: financial education, employability and environment.

The awards are open to a range of organisations across the third sector who can demonstrate their support for the local community, including groups promoting access to financial education, helping to upskill people for the workplace or aiming to improve and protect the environment.

There will be an overall winning group in each of the three categories which will secure £10,000 of funding, along with three highly commended that will each be awarded £5,000.
