“CALA has always been committed to making a positive and lasting contribution to local communities through an active programme of local charity donations, community support and sponsorship, and the Community Bursary scheme gives us the chance to find out exactly what support is needed locally.

The Bursary provides an opportunity for charities and groups of all sizes to apply for funds, and we look forward to hearing more about how we can get involved.”
