Islanders urged to apply for Steamship Group Fund


The Isles of Scilly Steamship Group is encouraging locals to apply for grants of up to £10,000.

The company's Community Fund, which has £30,000 to give away this financial year, is open to good causes and local projects across Cornwall and the islands.

Entries are now being accepted for the next round of funding, with the closing date set for February 28th.

Launched in 2016, the Community Fund has so far awarded £30,000 to 31 different projects ranging from a set of new mats for the Isles of Scilly Judo Club to a life-saving defibrillator for the Ronnie Richards Memorial Charity in Penzance.

A project to preserve irreplaceable historical data about pilot gig rowing recently received its biggest ever donation.

Bids to the Community Fund are open to voluntary groups or charities, schools and education establishments, community clubs or societies, and individuals undertaking not-for-profit projects for the benefit of the wider community.

Full details, eligibility criteria and application forms are available from the ISSG website. All projects are judged by members of an independent panel.
