It is specifically looking for applications from charities or not for profit organisations which operate across Central Scotland.
There are two planned rounds of funding with customers voting for their favourite projects instore during July/August and again in November/December. The first round is looking for charities or groups promoting health, prioritising those helping to tackle heart disease, cancer and diabetes. The second round of funding will have a broader community theme.
