Halkirk Community to benefit from new fund

18 January 2019

The Achlachan Wind Farm Fund will launch on Saturday 26th January 2019.  Anyone wishing to find out more about the fund is welcome to attend an information session at Spittal Village Hall, Caithness between 11 – 3pm.

The launch event has been organised by Foundation Scotland and Halkirk District Community Council land will be an opportunity to find out more about the fund. There will also provide an opportunity for residents interested in joining the Panel who will make funding decisions, using Foundation Scotland’s grant making expertise to ensure positive long lasting impact.

Eilidh Coll, Foundation Scotland’s local representative said “We would encourage as many people to come along to celebrate the launch of the Fund, to find out more about how to apply and to give their views on how this money could make a difference to their community. We know that by working with the community we can ensure that the money is spent strategically within the area to maximise lasting benefits for all” 

Tom Surman from Whirlwind Renewables said: "We are delighted to be working with Foundation Scotland to set up the Achlachan Wind Farm Fund. We are inviting people from the local community to hear about the proposals and give feedback about how the fund will work.” 

Foundation Scotland has been appointed by the wind farm operator, Whirlwind Renewables, to manage the community fund.

The Fund will be worth approximately £30,000 annually for the life of the Achlachan Wind Farm, expected to be 25 years.
