Shot in the arm to Crieff Highland Gathering is latest community boost by Crieff Succeeds BID

The Crieff Succeeds BID is continuing its support of local community events with a £3,000 shot in the arm for the Crieff Highland Gathering, which takes place this Sunday 21st August.

The grant money issued by Crieff Succeeds BID, which will contribute to funding the pipe bands who are appearing at Sunday’s event, is the latest in a £10,000 payout this year by the town’s new business development organisation and a planned £80,000 in community event and business grants over the next five years.

This year alone has seen Crieff Succeeds BID award £3000 to Crieff Science Festival and almost £2000 to Kids’ Week, which took place in Crieff last month. As well as supporting Crieff Highland Gathering, Crieff BID plans to donate £2,200 to the Crieff Arts Festival, £610 to Crieff Hogmanay and £100 to Drovers’ Tryst Walking Festival.

Alan Rankin, project leader at Crieff Succeeds BID, said the organisation welcomed more applications:

“Crieff Succeeds BID is all about promoting Crieff to new audiences across Scotland and putting our town and all it has to offer in the spotlight. We’re delighted to see our grant money being put to good use this weekend to support Crieff Highland Gathering and we welcome applications from more events and businesses who are doing good things for Crieff.”
