Scotland’s biggest home energy company Weatherseal has launched a major campaign which aims to give financial support to the capital’s community projects.


As part of an ongoing commitment to fund tens of thousands of pounds of worth local causes, across the country, the Weatherseal Community Heroes Fund will give back to the communities who have served Weatherseal so well over the years.


Any community or charity project in the Edinburgh area can today apply for a grant of up to £500 to spend on improving the lives of the people in their area.


Every area in Scotland will benefit from at least one community bursary award.


Weatherseal has already gifted thousands of pounds already including projects for the elderly, vulnerable, and young people. Other good causes have included supported mental health charities, children’s hospitals, specific children’s health support groups, and carers.


Weatherseal managing director Tony Reilly commented:- “Weatherseal is proud to serve Scotland and throughout the length and breadth of the country, communities have been good to us.


“We have a tradition of supporting local projects and charity, and this launch of a major new Community Heroes Fund over the next year, is a sign of our desire to support those who support those in the communities in which we serve.


“I fervently hope that lots of deserving local projects in the Edinburgh area apply for a bursary from our Weatherseal Community Heroes Fund, and would encourage as many as possible to do so.”


The Weatherseal Community Heroes Fund grants bursaries of up to £500. Applications should be submitted online here.  Please mention The Edinburgh Reporter when asked where you heard of the fund!

This project is in the west of Scotland but is the kind of thing Weatherseal are looking for!
