Kilfinan Fund Provides match funding for local business appeal

23 January 2013

 

Cowal Elderly Befrienders (CEBS) is currently trying to raise £28,000 between now and the end of August to replace one of their mini buses, which is in need of constant repair.

The charity provides a range of befriending services to elderly people in Cowal. Residents, many aged over 80 live in remote locations with limited services and rely heavily on the mini-bus for essential journeys. Most elderly residents cannot access the Dial a Bus service.

The Kilfinan Fund has supported the charity for many years and has pledged to match every £1 raised with a further £2. The fund is managed by Foundation Scotland (formerly the Scottish Community Foundation).

Hearing news of the match funding Pauline Livingstone from Cowal Elderly Befrienders said, “With just six months to raise such a large amount to know that for very £1 we will get another £2 from the Kilfinan Fund is wonderful news. I hope local people will respond to our appeal, knowing that their donation will go so much further to reaching our target.”

“Grant funding for mini buses is extremely hard to come by and The Kilfinan Fund has provided a life line with this offer and we hope people will support us by visiting our website and make a donation, supporting our local fundraising activities or just popping into our office on Argyll Street”
