Funding double brightens Raasay

AN ISLAND development trust has received two major funding boosts.

Raasay Development Trust was granted £19,000 from the Scottish Land Fund and £64,000 from the Climate Change Fund.

Eleven community groups across Scotland received a share of £2.1 million land fund cash to help them buy land for community ownership. Raasay Development Trust plans to use the Scottish Government cash to buy an old quarry and turn it into a site for community enterprises including a wood fuel business supplying logs to members of the community. It will also use the old quarry for equipment needed to connect the community’s hydro-electric scheme to the national grid.
