The Bank of Scotland Foundation is encouraging local charities to pop along to a roadshow they are holding in Glasgow this Friday, June 24.

Representatives will be on hand to answer questions and support charities with any Bank of Scotland Foundation grant applications they are currently preparing.

The Foundation receives £2m from Lloyds Banking Group annually as part of the Group’s commitment to helping people.

The Foundation donates these funds to charities across Scotland through their small, medium and large grants programmes - as well as its Matched Giving Programme for Lloyds Banking Group employees in Scotland.

Eleven roadshows will be held across Scotland to raise awareness of the Foundation’s grants programmes amongst local charities and customers. Each roadshow will be held at a local Bank of Scotland branch, with the Glasgow roadshow taking place at Bank of Scotland, 167-201 Argyle Street, Glasgow from 10am - 1pm this Friday.

Philip Grant, chair of the Scottish Executive Committee, Lloyds Banking Group and chair of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees said: “By holding roadshows in Bank of Scotland branches across Scotland, we can help charities to find out more about the funding available from Bank of Scotland Foundation and can also assist charities with any grant applications they are preparing.

“It’s also an ideal opportunity for local people to find out how Bank of Scotland Foundation grants are helping charities to deliver valuable support and make a tangible difference to the communities in which they live.”
