For Scots’ born residents in Perth & Kinross Council, who may be struggling financially with their courses or projects because of Covid-19 restrictions, your attention is drawn to the Cross Trust Covid Recovery Fund.
There is a Cross Trust Covid Recovery Fund set up from a grant from the Gannochy Trust Covid-19 Recovery & Renewal Grant, a generous initiative set up to help charities working in the Perth & Kinross area.
The Cross Trust proposes to provide financial support to young people living in the area towards the cost of University or College courses or other studies. Many young folk have been unable to obtain part-time work because of the Coronavirus restrictions and had been planning to manage their finances by part-time earnings.
Funds are limited and applications for an award will only be considered if applicants can demonstrate they are of outstanding merit and that their financial circumstances have been affected by Covid-19.
Applications can be made for the attention of Paul R McGregor, McCash & Hunter LLP, Secretaries to the Cross Trust, 25 South Methven Street, Perth PH1 5PE via the Cross Trust website (www.thecrosstrust.org.uk).
The deadline for applications is 11 December 2020.
