LAST Friday’s Funding Fayre in Saltcoats Town Hall, organised by Patricia Gibson MP and Kenneth Gibson MSP was great success.

Hundreds of representatives from community organisations across North Ayrshire attended throughout the morning.

Mrs Gibson said: “The funders were delighted at the opportunity to speak to people face to face, while feedback from the community groups themselves was also very positive.

“After last year’s event I was informed by several community groups that their visit resulted in funding being awarded and I am sure this will be the case again.”

Mr Gibson added: “Special thanks go to Margaret Johnson and Café Solace, which provided attendees with free tea and coffee, receiving numerous donations.”
