  • St Andrew's Day 2020 - Acts of Kindness

    Created: 16/11/2020

    For St Andrew’s Day 2020, BEMIS is encouraging local community groups to come together and celebrate Scotland’s national day by performing an act of kindness in their community – something that celebrates and promotes inclusion, diversity, and togetherness.

    BEMIS is offering grants of up to £1,000 for charities and community groups to perform an appropriate act of kindness around St Andrew’s Day.

    Who can apply?

    Constituted, charitable and non-profit organisations or community groups can apply for a grant. An act of kindness is something your group can do to help, support, or reward others in your community, either because they are in need, or they themselves have been helping others. For example, groups who have been badly affected by the lockdown and restrictions, or those who have been putting themselves at risk in order to help others in this time of crisis.

    The deadline for applications is Monday 23 November 2020.
