Community grant for benches

YOUNGSTERS from Gordon Park Playgroup were given the chance to choose new garden furniture last week, after the group applied for - and obtained - a community grant from Ellon Rotary Club.

The youngsters travelled to local social enterprise, Benchmark, at Castle Park Industrial Estate to choose the furniture, accompanied by playgroup leaders and parents. Earlier this year the playgroup had applied for a Community Grant from Ellon Rotary to assist them in funding items that would enhance their play area in the Gordon Park.

Rotary Club of Ellon is once again inviting individuals or groups or organisations to apply to the Community Grant Scheme for financial assistance to fund a planned project. The scheme can help to fund a community, environmental or educational project or support a local charity to develop a worthwhile initiative. Application forms can be obtained from Kenny Winton on 07711317887 or kennywinton@btopenworld.com.
