Scotmid Co-operative Community Funding Award

We are extremely grateful to Scotmid for their recent community funding award of £250 to purchase buoyancy aids and our CEO, Tony Brown, was delighted to receive a cheque from Bishopmill store supervisor, Robert.  It is vital to make sure all our safety equipment is in good working order and replaced when necessary, so any extra funding we receive towards these costs is always very gratefully received, particularly as Grants and Trusts fundraising is our main source of income at Outfit Moray. Our Grants and Trust Fundraiser is kept constantly busy sending out applications, not all of which are successful, which makes those that are, all that more important!

Scotmid Things to do in Moray with Outdoor learning and adventure Outfit Moray

The Scotttish Midland Co-operative Society is able to make so many donations in their local communities because they are an independent co-operative society. They are not owned by a private board of directors but by 60,000 who all have an equal say in how their Society is run.  If you wish to join the Scotmid society, you can pick up a form at your local Scotmid store and submit it to the cashier, along with £1 share capital.

To learn more about Scotmid’s community work, you can like them on Facebook, check out their YouTube channel or follow them on Twitter.

Ongoing fundraising efforts

Community fundraising continues to be a vital source of unrestricted funds income and we are always trying to come up with new ways to bring in a regular income, without having to ask for donations.  Please have a look at these three initiatives:
