Hadyard Hill Panel welcomes applications to Fund
14 April 2017
Hadyard Hill Community Benefit Fund’s new Advisory Panel held its first meeting this month and is ready and waiting to welcome applications for funding from community groups. The next application deadline is on 3rd May.
The fund is provided by SSE from the Hadyard Hill Wind Farm, for the benefit of the Barr, Dailly, Pinmore & Pinwherry communities.
The Panel decides on awards from the fund and is made up of local residents with a wide range of experience and interests. They are keen to support community and voluntary activity in their communities.
Applications from organisations both inside and outside the area are welcomed, so long as they can demonstrate benefit to one or more of the villages. Grants of up to £5,000 per year are available. For more information click here
Gareth Shields, Community Investment Manager for SSE said “We are delighted to see the good work that the Hadyard Hill fund has done over the past years continue with this new panel set up, which brings it in line with the way the majority of wind farm funds now operate. SSE will continue to work with the local communities and Foundation Scotland to make sure that the fund continues to make a positive contribution across the three community council areas.”
