Small grants of up to £250 are being made available to organisations and groups to help with activities within the Cairngorms National Park.

The cashpot is open to the likes of youth groups, toddler groups, social clubs, local sports groups and special needs groups amongst others.

The Cairngorms National Park Authority Staff Charitable Group (CNPASCG) is now accepting applications.

The CNPASCG was set up by CNPA staff shortly after the park authority was created.

The fund can help with a whole host of activities to help with enjoying the Cairngorms National Park.

Funds are raised by staff through a variety of activities including cake, plant and clothing sales as well a programme of staff lectures and raffles, and it is completely independent of the corporate activities of the CNPA.

Adam Streeter-Smith, chairman of the CNPASCG, explained: “We live and work in this beautiful part of the country. The Cairngorms National Park is an amazing place and staff want to help other people experience it too.

"We have had varied applications in the past and we have been able to support pensioner groups needing to hire a mini bus, a parent forum to purchase binoculars for a school bird hide and even a canoe clubs looking to buy a canoe."

Any group can apply for a grant but preference will be given to groups who wish to undertake activities or visits within the Cairngorms National Park which are not programmed or that are currently supported by other agencies or grant giving bodies.
