We have now announced three successful recipients of our Community Heroes Fund – Johnstone Community Sports Complex who purchased tools for a new community garden, Inverkip Carer and Toddler group who could buy new toys for after their old ones were damaged in a storm and Falkirk Ladies Football Club who were able to put on a whole new block of coaching sessions for primary school girls.
We have also helped a variety of other projects through previous bursary programmes, awarding Aberlour Childcare Trust (one of only three centres in Scotland for runaway children) £500 to help buy kits for all the children who arrive at the centre.
Linn Park Youth Club is a club is for young people aged 14-25 who have learning and physical disabilies. They were awarded £400 to purchase a new TV so they could continue their much loved Kareoke night after a broken TV put a halt to it.
Linlithgow First Responders provide vital support to the ambulance service in the local community by carrying out first aid on patients while they await the ambulance turning up. The group are always looking for new members but the cost of new uniforms and medical equipment is high. They received £480 which covered the cost of four new kits for their members.
If your project, group or charity is based in or around Glasgow, Aberdeen or Edinburgh then we’re keen to hear from you. Or perhaps you know a worthy cause that you think might be interested in applying, if so let them know about us!
We will be visiting most of Scotland over the coming months, so if you would like to know more about when we are visiting your area you can Tweet to us via the link below.
