21 July 2016

 

Thanks to everyone who participated in the BIG IDEA.! 361 people voted for one, two or three of the projects that made it through to Stage 2. The Panel has now allocated the £45,000 available as follows, informed by the public vote and the independent assessments that were carried out on each of the projects.

The Panel has also agreed to support the two other projects that were in the running for Stage 2:

Mactaggart Cyber Café

(174 votes)

£5,654

Providing “Boogie Bounce" trampoline fitness classes across Islay and Jura.

Jura Development Trust

(149 votes)

£12,000

Although the Boogie Bounce project actually came in second on the public vote the Panel were of the view that it was less strategic and its potential for leaving an enduring legacy was uncertain. However it was clearly popular – hence the decision to support it. Similarly although the BETTI Bus project came fifth in the public vote a significant amount of people from both Islay and Jura supported this project that will increase opportunities for a range of individuals and groups on both Islay and Jura to access different facilities and opportunities.
