Kintyre Crime Prevention Panel (KCPP) has received a cash boost courtesy of Argyll Community Housing Association’s (ACHA) community action fund.

The £200 donation will assist with the purchase of keyring personal alarms for the elderly, lone workers and vulnerable people.

Andrew Hemmings, chairman of KCPP, said members of the panel were ‘delighted’ to receive the funding.

KCPP was one of 16 organisations from across Argyll and Bute to receive financial assistance of up to £500 for projects which have a housing connection, or a connection to ACHA’s aims and objectives.

Elizabeth Rhodick, chairwoman of ACHA’s Mid Argyll and Kintyre area committee, said: ‘It is a pleasure to help charitable organisations with funding for their projects from ACHA’s community action fund. Small funds can raise big fund.’

Applications from registered charities are welcome and more information on the fund can be found at or by telephoning 01546 605922 to have an application form sent out.
