Berwickshire Wheels Grant

An application to Scottish Borders Council Community Grant Scheme for £5,000 was approved for Berwickshire Wheels.

A grant offer of £1,000 from Greencoat Drone Hill Community Fund following an application last year has been confirmed.

Both amounts will be used toward the purchase of a Nissan Leaf electric vehicle with a list price of £28,130. After fleet discount of £5,000 and Government adjustment of £4,500 the price is reduced to £19,180.

A submission to the National Lottery Awards for All programme for £10,000 toward the cost of a Peugeot Boxer wheelchair accessible 16 seat vehicle was successful.
