RURAL community projects in Renfrewshire could be eligible to receive grants of up to £5,000 from home energy provider Calor.

The Calor Rural Community Fund aims to reward deserving community projects with prize pots ranging from £1,000 to £5,000.

This year, Calor is giving away 21 grants totalling £70,000.

The number of £5,000 donations has also been doubled from last year, with a total of 10 up for grabs.

Rural communities off the mains gas grid can submit their projects for funding.

The projects that receive the most votes from the public will be shortlisted and then reviewed by a panel of judges, who will select the final 21 winners.

Applications must be submitted by April 29.
