RBS has given a grant of £4543.50 to allow Isle Futures to continue to plan and invest in the garden area at the new annex building in the viaage.

It is hoped that the whole community will benefit from the enhanced area as well as local children and visitors.

Sharon Cameron, project manager at Isle Futures, said: “We are delighted to receive such a generous grant from RBS. With it, we’ve been able to move forward with our ambitious garden project.”

Laura Chow, Head of Charitable Programmes at RBS, said: “At RBS we recognise our commitment to the society we operate in. We’re really pleased to have been able to assist Isle Futures in this way and see how it allows their great work to continue”.

Isle Futures is a Community Regeneration Charity based in Isle of Whithorn, run by a Board of Trustees, who employ staff to run the facilities on their behalf, along with help from volunteers.

The charity owns the local village hall and in October opened a large annexe which hosts a tearoom and a retail space.
