Groups and organisations are being urged to apply for a share of Glasgow Airport's FlightPath Fund - which is worth £120k.

The fund aims to support community groups, charities, and sustainability-themed projects local to the airport.

The package will be available this year for projects within the four local authorities backed by Glasgow Airport's FlightPath Fund, which are Renfrewshire, northwest Glasgow, East and West Dunbartonshire.

Archie Hunter, chair of the FlightPath Fund, said: "Once again Glasgow Airport has invested significantly to ensure that dozens of fantastic causes in the surrounding communities will benefit from its continued success.

The Gazette:

"This latest tranche of funding takes us a step closer to almost £2 million in support since the FlightPath Fund was introduced back in 2010, which is simply incredible.

"The airport deserves huge credit for making sure that hundreds of neighbouring organisations, clubs and charities of all shapes and sizes have received support over the years."

Airport passengers also contribute to the fund through donation globes placed across the terminal.

These globes collected almost £10,000 in international spare change last year alone.

In 2023, the fund supported 62 groups and charities, distributing over £120,000.

Awards included £4700 to unpaid carers in Clydebank, £5000 to fund the purchase of a safety boat for a sea scout group in Renfrew, £800 to purchase a defibrillator for community first responders in Milngavie and £5650 to 10 primary schools participating in a national STEM project.
