Award from Coalfields

We’re thrilled to announce we’ve been awarded an amazing £4,155 as a Community grant from Coalfields Regeneration Trust!

This follows the funding process over several months with engagement with the public of Blantyre. Thanks to everybody who voted for our application. The grant amount comes at a time when it is needed more than ever, with rising costs for the Gala weekend. The award is incredibly important for us and will be used to buy equipment, including outright purchase of brand new tables and chairs, which will reduce future hire costs.

We hope to be able to store our new tables and chairs in the Sports Centre, in readiness for events, but if any organisation out there would permit us to store them on their premises, such as clubs, halls, we would be happy in exchange to provide free use of them. Just let us know!

Thank you to everybody who made this happen, especially Coalfields themselves for making it possible.
