Award of funding to support volunteering activities.
The Trust is the lead organisation for a group of four Auchtermuchty community groups which were awarded a grant of £29,379 from the Voluntary Action Fund, an independent grant-making body which invests in voluntary organisations and community groups across Scotland.
The four groups in the cluster are:
- Auchtermuchty Community Trust
- Auchtermuchty Festival Society
- Auchtermuchty Theatre Group
- Muchty in Bloom
The grant was used to employ a Volunteers' Co-ordinator, who worked on behalf of all four groups to recruit more volunteers and to provide volunteers with training and additional skills. You can find more information on volunteering opportunities for the Trust on the Help! page.
