Fifteen small community groups are to receive grants of up to £5,000 from a funding scheme run by Shetland Charitable Trust (SCT).
One of the maximum awards goes to Shetland Heritage Association towards its plans to modernise.
The association brings together a network of small history groups and is aiming to increase people’s involvement with Shetland’s heritage.
Shetland Girls Football were also given a one-off maximum award of £5,000 to help with the cost of girls’ teams travelling to Edinburgh last month to compete in the Caledonia Super Cup.
The Space2Face Shetland charity was given £4,974 as a contribution to its work helping repair the harm done by crime and conflict in the community.
And Gulberwick, Quarff and Cunningsburgh Community Council received a £4,500 grant boost for its scheme to provide a free hot meal each week to local folk who are lonely or vulnerable.
Other projects to benefit from the scheme were Shetland Folk Society (£2,300), to support the running of the annual Young Fiddler of the Year competition, and Shetland Classic Motor Show (£1,500).
The Multiple Sclerosis Shetland Group was given £2,520 to provide a fatigue management group, and Cunningsburgh Football Club received £2,214 to replace the goals at its pitch.
These awards come from the SCT’s Small Grant Scheme for groups with a turnover of less than £50,000 a year.
