£5,000 Awarded to Orkney’s Music Instrument Bank

The Reel Life Foundation is a charity set up to support and promote the distinctive musical traditions of Orkney.

The aim of the Calor Rural Community Fund is to give off-grid communities the chance to gain grants for projects that will improve local life. With a total fund of £50,000, this year the scheme offered funding for 21 different projects, with prize pots ranging from £1,000 up to £5,000.

The annual scheme returns in spring 2019, bigger and better than ever! To find out more and to register your interest, please visit
