Maria Ragan, Director, St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery, said: “The Loganair GreenSkies funding has made a huge difference to St Barbe. We used it to purchase an Air Source Heat Pump for our object collections store. This means that we can now maintain a more even, regulated environment for the collection which will help protect them for generations to come. It is also a much more welcoming environment for visitors and community groups to visit.” Loganair’s GreenSkies Community Fund is part of the airline’s journey to net-zero by 2040. To date, the fund has supported organisations like St Barbe Museum to establish and boost renewable energy projects from ank you to everyone that has dropped o stamps to the collection box in e Herald, a further £287.50 (including £57.50 Gi Aid) has been donated to the Guide Dogs Charity. We o en get asked what happens to the stamps. Once a fortnight ‘Stamp Man’ Tony Pond empties the box and diligently sorts through the stamps and organises them into lots that are then sold at auction. All the money raised from the auctions is then donated to Guide Dogs. You can drop used and old postage stamps into the yellow collection box in e Herald ready for Tony to collect.

We look forward to reviewing applications from not-for-profit businesses, charities and local groups seeking to make their own steps towards net zero but who might not have the financial resources to do this alone.” Loganair, has recently announced it will award a further £30,000 to support local renewable energy projects across the UK, Isle of Man and Northern Ireland. e Greenskies Community Fund is now open and applications should be submitted by Tuesday 31st October, via the Loganair website: www.loganair. co.uk/people-planet/greenskies-community-fundautumn-2023 small-scale wind systems and hydro power to solar panels and charging point stations for electric vehicles. Jonathan Hinkles, Loganair Chief Executive, said: “We continue to make great strides in our journey to net-zero and GreenSkies Community Fund is just one strand in a much wider strategy. Now in its third round, it’s fantastic to reflect on the difference the fund has made to date for local organisations on their own sustainability journeys.
