Youngsters helping to protect the sea and beach from litter have become the 50th group to receive support from a fund set up during lockdown.


The North Highland Initiative’s (NHI) community support programme was established in March to provide grants of up to £1,000 for small organisations in the education, conservation, community service and support sectors in Caithness, Sutherland and Ross and Cromarty.


It has now provided £45,000 to a variety of organisations, including Ullapool Sea Savers which was set up in response to the work of the Scottish Wildlife Trusts’ Living Seas Project engaging people in the value of the Wester Ross Marine Protected Area.
