Following the recent success of the Largs Employment Fayre he hosted with Patricia Gibson MP at Barrfields, local MSP Kenneth Gibson is organising a Funding Fayre, which will take place at Saltcoats Town Hall on Monday, 20 November, from 10:00 - 12:00.

Kenneth said: "North Ayrshire is full of fantastic community and charity groups which are being kept running by dedicated local people. They may not always be aware of the many funding sources that are out there so I am keen to bring those who need funding and those who provide it together.

"The Funding Fayre will provide an excellent opportunity for local groups to interact face-to-face with a variety of national funders including sportscotland, the Big Lottery Fund, the Robertson Trust and others.

"I would encourage any group that wishes to send someone along and has yet to receive an invite to contact my office on 01294 833 687 or get in touch with me at:
