Lottery fund­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - POLITICS -

The Healthy n Happy Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Trust is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter se­cur­ing a grant from the Big Lottery Fund for its Re­Con­nect pro­ject.

The fund­ing will help it to con­tinue its work in Ruther­glen, Cam­bus­lang and East Kil­bride.

The pi­lot pro­ject has helped many iso­lated older in­di­vid­u­als to in­te­grate and con­nect with their com­mu­ni­ties.

Re­Con­nect aims to tackle lone­li­ness by work­ing with vol­un­teers who spend time with older peo­ple.

Any­one who is in­ter­ested in volunteering should call Lesley on 0141 646 0123.
