HUDSON HIRSEL FUND
The Hudson Hirsel Awards Panel met on 26th June to award grants to 3 valuable organisations in the town. Today (20th July), the 3 groups and Jamie Hudson of the Hudson Hirsel LLP attended the community centre to meet the 3 groups and make the awards. It was explained that the Hudson Hirsel Fund had now, since June 2016, awarded grants to 12 organisations in the town, totalling nearly £17,000 and impacting young and old. Depending on the sale of houses at the Leet Haugh, the intention is to continue to fund community organisations, but this may take time of course.
The 3 groups awarded grants on this occasion were the Coldstream Mens' Shed (£3,000) to help refurbish the Rodger Hall, Coldstream Bowling Club (£1,500) to purchase equipment for youngsters and the Borders Buzz Club (£1,000) to help develop further its social functions.
The next round of grant applications are due by 1st November 2017 and generally, at this stage, the fund tends to restrict grants to £3,000. The awards panel likes bodies that have initiatives that will make a difference to the town and to a body's membership. Electronic grant applications in pdf format are preferred but hard copy applications would not be discouraged..
