There are just two weeks to go until the CalMac Community Fund closes, but there is still plenty of scope to help youth groups up and down the west coast.

Closing on December 13, CalMac is accepting applications for a project or activity that will benefit people aged 26 and under.

Organisations based in a mainland port or island the company serves can apply for £500 to £2,000. 

So far the fund has supported 39 projects from women’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 into the support we are offering. Many hundreds of young people have benefited from the fund so far and we are still in position where we can help even more.’

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