Funding is on offer to support ideas and plans that will help to protect the Isle of Man's heritage.

Individuals, groups and organisations could secure up to £5,000 as part of the Donald Collister Heritage Grant Scheme.

The money makes up part of a £1 million bequest which was left to Manx National Heritage by the former Colby resident when he died in 2007.

Applications, which have to be in by March 31st, must demonstrate how the project makes a measurable and sustainable contribution to the economy and how it would attract new visitors.

Director Edmund Southworth says heritage was a cause close to Mr Collister's heart:
