£1,000 For Community First UK!

September 13, 2021

Just a wee walk down the steps from Asda Forfar is Community First UK which is a Social Enterprise that aims to support the needs of the community through various projects such as a social supermarket, the first of it's kind in the county of Angus.

Their latest initiative is to open a café with a book exchange which will help reduce social isolation and allow customers to access free, good quality books, especially while the local library is only open on reduced hours at the moment. They applied for our Bringing Communities Back Together grant to help towards bookcases, books and refreshments for their Community First Café Book Day and I was delighted to let them know their application was successful and they would be receiving £1,000.
