Novus launches £20,000 fund for Scottish community project

Contractor Novus is donating £20,000 to support the delivery of a charity project in Scotland that will be voted for by people across the country.

Novus is calling on residents of Scotland to nominate worthy projects. Communities will have until August 19 to vote for their choice, which could include anything from the refurbishment of an important building to projects that will develop the skills of young people.

The initiative, which celebrates the contractor’s five-year anniversary, will begin in September and welcome donations from clients and suppliers in the region. It follows successful projects in Leeds, to refurbish a home for a vulnerable person, Brighton, providing a hospital bereavement apartment, and the Midlands, reopening a community centre that had fallen into disrepair.

Stuart Seddon, Novus’ non-executive chairman, said: “Novus is a family-owned, nationwide business and giving back to the community is vital to us and the rest of the team here. We value the areas we work in across the UK a lot and their success and prosperity mean a great deal to us all.

“We’ve opened the competition up to such a large area to offer as many worthy projects as possible the opportunity to benefit from this initiative and win something that will benefit them for years to come.”

Scotland is one of five areas around the UK where £20,000 is being spent on local community projects this year by Novus as part of its Big Five initiative. The business is a national contractor with offices in Glasgow, Dumfries, Bathgate and Dundee.
