There are only a few weeks left to apply for CalMac’s community fund.

Groups have until December 13 to get their applications in for a project or activity that will benefit young people aged 26 and under.

Organisations based in a mainland port or island the company serves can apply for £500 to £2,000.

So far the fund has supported 39 projects from woman’s football in the Outer Hebrides and a Gaelic youth club on Skye, as well as Campbeltown Sea Cadets, who received £2,000.

Brian Fulton, director of community and stakeholder engagement at CalMac, said: ‘This is the last chance for groups to tap in to the support we are offering. Many hundreds of young people have benefited from the fund so far and we are still in position where we can help even more.’

Organisations which have applied unsuccessfully are welcome to submit a new application, but successful applicants cannot apply again.

Application forms and full terms and conditions can be found at calmac.co.uk/community-fund
