East Ayrshire Food Larders Grant Awards

Cumnock Juniors Community Enterprise

Cunninghame Housing Association’s Board of Management awarded £500 to Cumnock Juniors Community Enterprise who, during Covid, supported their local community in times of need. The organisation voluntarily, made up food parcels and delivered to people who were vulnerable, immobile, or isolated.

The donation of £500 from Cunninghame Housing Association was a massive support to help aid the project and supported many families, particularly, a local primary school, who identified young people whose families would benefit from the food parcels.

“thank you to Cunninghame Housing Association for their kind donation, it is greatly appreciated and is a huge support to the work we do in the local community”.

Netherthird Initiative for Community Empowerment (NICE)

Cunninghame Housing Association’s Board of Management awarded £500 to Netherthird Initiative for Community Empowerment to assist with the costs involved in the running of their food larder. The food larder is run by volunteers and gives local people access to groceries/toiletries at a reduced cost as opposed to the expensive supermarkets which may not be an option for people who are struggling financially.

“thank you to Cunninghame Housing Association’s Board of Management for their kind donation made to the running of the food larder, it is very much appreciated. The food larder has been very busy, especially during Covid and the support is very much appreciated”
