NEW PIGGY BANK LAUNCHED IN EWANRIGG

A new community fund, which can be used for activities and training has been launched in Ewanrigg.

The ‘Community Piggy Bank’ is the brainchild of The Ewanrigg Local Trust (ELT), a resident led group who want to bring about lasting improvements and change in Ewanrigg by pooling local talent, ambitions, skills and energy. The ELT have put aside some of a £1million Big Lottery investment into the Community Piggy Bank so that it can be accessed by individuals, groups and organisations who wish to organise activities, community projects or undergo training.

The ELT has been working within the community for several years and they have recently had their Big Local Action Plan approved by funders. The plan, which was written in consultation with residents, aims to develop safe and inspiring spaces, reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, improve welfare and wellbeing and increase aspiration, learning and attainment.

It is hoped that the Community Piggy Bank will increase opportunities for sports, arts, health, welfare, learning, training and work in Ewanrigg; support an increase in community-led activities that are self-sustaining and encourage trips to see inspiring activity that could influence future developments.

Applications can be made for up to £300 or £300 - £3000 via a simple form. They must show a direct benefit to people or individuals living in the Ewanrigg area and should also complement the aims and vision of the ELT. There is no deadline and applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis over the next ten years of the Big Lottery programme.

Sharon Barnes, Chair of the ELT said, “We hope that this funding will kick-start more opportunities for Ewanrigg residents. New community groups may be set up, or existing groups could expand. We’d like to help residents try out new sports, arts and health activities that they may then go on to take up on a longer term basis. The funding might also mean that an individual can access training or equipment that they need to gain employment or set up a business. We have made the application process and criteria very simple. We want to encourage anyone to apply; we want people with really good ideas to get in touch and help make Ewanrigg an even better place to live.”
