SNP MSP for Clydesdale, Aileen Campbell is urging voluntary groups to apply for Action Earth grants to improve green spaces in the area.

The Action Earth environment volunteering campaign is offering a range of grants to active groups across Scotland. Groups can apply for amounts between £50 and £250 to fund practical activities that involve volunteers in improving outdoor spaces or creating habitats for wildlife. Action Earth is also offering grants of up to £500 for voluntary activity on a Local Nature Reserve for practical work, wildlife recording or educational activities. The Action Earth campaign is run by Volunteer Matters in conjunction with Scottish Natural Heritage from April to December every year.

Community groups can register to apply for the grants at

Commenting, Aileen said:

"Clydesdale has beautiful green spaces on offer that are well maintained by community groups but can always benefit from a financial boost. The Action Earth grants can be used by groups to purchase plants, materials or to cover general costs, all of which can help to motivate volunteers and encourage others to come along too.

"Those involved in outdoor space improvement groups should take this opportunity and apply online as soon as possible. I will be encouraging groups across the constituency to apply to help our green spaces reach their full potential."
