ROSEANNA ENCOURAGES APPLICATIONS FOR "SCOTLAND LOVES LOCAL" FUND

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has encouraged people responsible for projects in her constituency to apply for a new £1 million fund which has been launched by the SNP government to help promote town centres and online businesses and encourage people to spend locally. 

Grants of between £500 and £5000 will be given out as part of the "Scotland Loves Local" scheme, which aims to enable visitors and residents to safely shop, eat and relax within communities.

The funding aims to support small-scale improvements that will help motivate people to shop, eat and relax within their community whilst ensuring public health safety, and can be used for measures such as protective screens, physical distancing markers, hand sanitising equipment and PPE.

Roseanna said: 

“We all have a role to play in Scotland’s economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, and it’s now more important than ever to consider shopping locally and supporting the brilliant local businesses that we are fortunate to have across Perthshire South & Kinross-shire.

“The 'Scotland Loves Local' campaign – which will provide grants of between £500 and £5,000 – encourages people to think how they can safely support people as they shop, eat and relax within their community whilst promoting public health.

“This £1 million fund, delivered by the Scottish Government, is an exciting opportunity for local projects and locally-based online businesses to support town centres and promote local communities. 

This new fund will be a real boost for businesses and communities across Perthshire South & Kinross-shire.”
