The Kype Muir Community Fund has been operational throughout and we still welcome applications. (See below for details). In addition to providing funding for local groups, the Kype Muir Fund has donated £3500 to help support the ‘Working together for Avondale’ Community Support group that has been coordinating support from a variety of local groups and organisations throughout the health emergency.
