Charities and community groups in Dumbarton are being encouraged to apply for the second round of a new fund.

Miller Homes have pledged to donate £10,000 to projects, charities, community groups and other causes located near its Garshake Gardens development in the town.

Whether it’s food banks in need of supplies, local sports groups looking for new equipment or kit, or allotment groups hoping to grow produce for the community, Miller Homes wants to support the amazing work going on.

Groups in Dumbarton can apply for a grant ranging from £250 to £2,000 until Wednesday, May 3.

Food for Thought in Dumbarton and Dynamite Gymnastics Club in nearby Clydebank were among the worthy causes that received funding from the housebuilder last year.

The sports club received £500 from Miller Homes Scotland West to help its attendees aged 16 who assist with recreational classes get through their Level 1 UKCC coaching course.

Louise Caldwell, sales director for Miller Homes Scotland West, said: “It’s been heartening to be part of this experience and a pleasure to support so many groups at the core of our local communities. A huge thanks to everyone who participated last year.

“As we embark on our second round of funding, we hope to support even more members of our communities across the West of Scotland and encourage all groups, no matter their size, to get in touch.”

Each of Miller Homes’ 10 regional offices across the UK will have its own £10,000 fund, which combined will contribute £100,000 to community initiatives across the country every year.
