1 Mins read

The Open Legacy Fund which aims to leave a long-lasting positive impact in Portrush is now open for applications.

Community and voluntary groups along with statutory organisations can apply for a share of £100,000 towards projects and initiatives which will benefit residents in the seaside town.

The money is provided by The R&A as an acknowledgement of the role played by local communities during The Open which returns to Portrush from July 14th – 21st for the first time in almost 70 years.

Encouraging eligible groups to apply, the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Brenda Chivers said: “The Open Legacy Fund represents a unique opportunity for Portrush to deliver a sustainable legacy which will benefit the wider community. Together with the R&A we are excited by the social, environmental or wellbeing changes this fund could make, contributing to the continuing prosperity and enhancement of the town following The Open.”

Applicants can apply for small grants (£5000- £10,000) or large grants (£10,000 – £50,000).
