GLC launches new 'Schools Trust' for Govan kids and invites grant applications from schools

Sine Labore' (Nothing Without Work)
GLC has today launched a new charity called the 'Govan Law Centre Schools Trust' (Scottish charity number SCO42451), with the objective of promoting the advancement of education by making small grants to schools in the Greater Govan area of Glasgow.

Fundraising has already been undertaken by GLC to enable the first round of grants to be made by the end of October 2011.  Headteachers of local primary and secondary schools in the Greater Govan area have today been sent a letter inviting them to make an application for a grant(s) by 22 September 2011.

Individual grants are unlikely to be awarded in excess of £250. There is no formal application form and no additional prescriptive rules as the GLC Schools Trust believe that local schools will be in the best position to know what would be a good use of grant funding.
