The average donations are between £250 and £500, however they make a significant impact to the delivery of community projects and we are very pleased to be able to make these donations to help worthy causes. I am struck by the sheer diversity of the organisations that we have been able to support which indicates that community spirit in Fife and Perthshire is alive and well.”

Bill added: “2019 will be Kingdom’s 40th anniversary and as part of our programme of celebrations we will be promoting the opportunity to bid for grant assistance through our Community Initiatives Fund. Details on the Fund is available on our website along with information on how to apply.”
