A lump sum of £25,000 is available to one lucky organisation

Charities and organisations have been urged to apply for a £25,000 lump sum from Glasgow Airport’s FlightPath Fund to help provide a lasting benefit for their community.

The money will be given to a charity or community group based in Renfrewshire, Glasgow, or East and West Dunbartonshire, which fall under Glasgow Airport’s flightpath.

In order to be considered for the support, applicants must demonstrate positive outcomes in at least one of the three areas where the FlightPath Fund’s community investment is focused – education, employment and the environment.

The fund’s chairman, former KPMG Scotland head Archie Hunter, said: “This one-off lump sum will present one charity, community group or organisation from our local authority areas with a tremendous opportunity to make a significant difference.

“Through this fund, Glasgow Airport has been a force for good for many years now and continues to support a diverse range of organisations across the west of Scotland from dance troupes to veterans’ charities and disability groups to sports clubs.

“I’d urge the many local groups and organisations in the areas we serve, including those which have previously received funding, to grasp this opportunity and submit an application, as the £25,000 on offer really could make huge difference to the people they support.”
