£eith Chooses fund is growing!

Happy news –  £eith Chooses funds are growing, so more than 11 projects will get funded! The fund started with £46,106 from the Council’s Community Grant Fund, and then that was supplemented by a donation of £5,000 from the Port of Leith Housing Association (POLHA). And now we have had confirmation of a further donation of £5,000 to come from the Trams to Newhaven project. A huge thank you to both of these organisations for their generosity!


There is a now a total of £56,106 available, which will be allocated to projects (up to £5,000 each) benefitting Leith, on the basis of a public vote (online) in January 2022.

Make sure you get your application in y 30 November! Even if you don’t win funding this year, it’s a great way to get publicity and make sure your organisation is ‘on the map’.
