A CASH boost of £25,000 is being offered to charities in Renfrewshire.

Glasgow Airport is offering the grant to groups to, ‘help provide a lasting benefit’ for their community.

“Through this Fund, Glasgow Airport has been a force for good for many years now and continues to support a diverse range of organisations across the west of Scotland from dance troupes to veterans’ charities and disability groups to sports clubs.

“I’d urge the many local groups and organisations in the areas we serve, including those which have previously received funding, to grasp this opportunity and submit an application
