Spirit of the community

Community groups have been invited to enter an awards scheme which could see them sharing a funding jackpot of £75,000.

Clydesdale Bank’s Spirit of the Community Awards programme is open for applications.

The bank will make donations to registered charities and not-for-profit organisations to recognise them going the extra mile. Groups are invited to enter the awards scheme under one of three categories - financial education, employability and environment.

They must demonstrate their support for the local community. This could be by promoting access to financial education, helping to upskill people for the workplace or protecting the environment. To enter go to www.cbonline.co.uk/foundation or visit your local Clydesdale Bank branch.
