Our Automata in Eastgate Centre - raising funds for local charities


Inverness Loch Ness Rotary Grant Scheme 2017

The Rotary Club of Inverness Loch Ness is making a monthly grant available to smaller charities, organisations and clubs in the Inverness area. Bids can be lodged for between £50 and £200. A total of £200 will be allocated each month.

The grant must be used to benefit people or communities in the Inverness area. The criteria used in making the awards will be:

  • a clear benefit to people or communities
  • the organization, club or charity must have longterm sustainability
  • the grant will be used quickly rather than saved in the bank for future spending.

If a bid is not successful in a particular month it will be considered with other bids in subsequent months.

Local Grants: a grant of  up to £200 is available each month, funded by the Automaton in the Eastgate Centre
