Oban’s Men’s Shed receives £900 grant
THE Oban Men’s Shed has received a £900 grant in order to help finance new ideas.
The grant will enable the shed to visit other sheds across Scotland so they can learn how to develop and also to buy new tools to boost the number of projects they are able to work on.
Age Scotland chief executive Keith Robson said: ‘Men’s sheds can play a huge role in reducing loneliness and isolation, and the stories we hear from ‘shedders’ goes to prove just that.
‘Age Scotland has been delighted to support and enable the development of new sheds across Scotland, doing our bit to help improve the lives of thousands of men. ‘We know that you can never underestimate the value in providing a space to allow people to come together and feel welcomed.
‘We look forward to seeing how the Oban Men’s Shed grows with this new support.
‘I wish all the shedders well in their individual projects.’
In total, Age Scotland has financially supported 28 sheds across Scotland with a grants totalling over £40,000.
