Care home wins Lotto fund­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.
