Care home wins Lotto funding
Link Housing Association has been awarded a £6,000 grant for a project at a Cambuslang care home.
The cash is part of the latest “Awards for All” funding package from the Big Lottery.
It will go to a tenant well-being project at Link’s sheltered housing complex at Glenpark Gardens.
The project aims to improve the quality of life of tenants, aged between 62 and 99.
The money will be used to buy equipment for the complex, including a computer and printer, plants, hanging baskets and a storage box for the gardens.
It will also be used for functions at the complex, bus trips as well as taster sessions on computer skills and classes on mindfulness and relaxation.
June Green, director of housing services said: “Link is delighted to have been awarded funding from Big Lottery to help the Glenpark Gardens tenant well-being project, which will make a big difference to the residents’ lives.”
An Awards for All spokesperson said, “We are always surprised at the difference a relatively small amount of money can make providing support and advice to people in communities across Scotland.
“We wish Glenpark Gardens tenant well-being project all the best for the future.”
Awards for All Scotland gives out grants of between £500 and £10,000 to projects that aim to help improve local communities and the lives of people most in need. It is a partnership by sportscotland and Big Lottery Fund.
