Local Children Benefit from Windfarm Cash!

27 September 2018

No Limits Caithness and Watten School Parent Council are celebrating as they both secure funding from the Watten Windfarm Charitable Trust.

Watten School Parent Council received £7500 over a three year period to help with transportation costs for extracurricular activities. With only a school roll of 51, fundraising can be difficult and travelling to locations such as Dunnet Forest, would place a significant financial burden on parents, thus making such trips prohibitive.  The award will ensure that trips can continue and pupils can go on trips which support their learning.

Watten School Parent Council Secretary said “The grant will have a long term impact, as the children will have memories of places they have been, thanks to the buses being funded and also taking part in the science festival, swimming, music festival etc.”

Eilidh Gunn, Foundation Scotland’s local representative said “It’s great to see groups making multiyear application to the Fund, it means their project is guaranteed for the next three years and they can still apply for other projects.”

No Limits Caithness received £1680 to subsidise a local’s child’s attendance at the service.  The grant will provide the support the child and to ensure their full inclusion in the service.

Watten Charitable Windfarm Trust is a partnership between Watten Community Council and Foundation Scotland, it allows funds from different companies or donors, pledged for the benefit of the Watten community, to effectively be pooled together and managed as one.

Currently, the Trust manages funds from Whirlwind’s Wathergar Wind Farm and RWE Innogy UK’s Bilbster Wind Farm.
