In all, 20 projects applied to £eith Chooses this year, and the total amount of money requested amounted to £86,802. But of course, as there was only £54,102 available, sadly not every group that applies could be successful in winning funding. Based on the number of votes received from members of the Leith community, 12 projects will receive full funding. Congratulations to all!
Sadly, there are 8 groups that were not successful this year. If your name isn’t on this list below, it means your group has not been succesful in winning funding on this occasion. Commiserations – this is very disappointing, but please don’t be too discouraged; your participation is really valued, and hopefully that your time will come sometime soon.
This year, £eith Chooses will fund the following 12 community groups in Leith:
Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB)
Edinburgh Community Food, and Leith Walk Police Box
Edinburgh NE Foodbank
Dr. Bells Family Centre
Central Leith After School Club (CLASP)
Edinburgh Tool Library
Hermitage Park School Association
We will publish more details on this website later on.
