The following groups will receive funding as a result of the £eith Chooses 2022 voting. Congratulations to all, and we look forward to seeing your projects develop and benefit the community in Leith over the coming year.
Commiserations to those groups that were not successful this year. Please don’t be too discouraged. Your participation is really valued, and we hope that as more people become aware of your work, perhaps your time will come next year.
