Deadline approaches for CalMac's Community Fund

With just over a month to go before it closes for this year CalMac's Community Fund still has plenty of scope to help youth groups up and down the west coast. 

Groups have until December 13 to get their applications in for a project or activity that will benefit young people aged 26 and under. Organisations based in a mainland port or island the company serves can apply for £500 to £2000. 

So far the Fund has supported 39 projects from girl's football in the Outer Hebrides, to the Campbeltown Sea Cadets and a Gaelic youth club on Skye. 

CalMac's Director of Community and Stakeholder Engagement, Brian Fulton said: 

'This is the last chance for groups to tap in to the support we are offering. Many hundreds of young have benefited from the Fund so far and we are still in position where we can help even more.'

CalMac is the UK's largest ferry operator and last year carried more nearly 5.6 million passengers and 1.4 million vehicles. It services 26 routes to island and remote mainland communities across the Hebrides and the Clyde with a fleet of 33 vessels. 

Organisations who have applied unsuccessfully are welcome to submit a new application, but successful applicants cannot apply again.
