Funding boost for Dalmarnock Legacy Hub
A £1.25MILLION Lotto boost to Glasgow’s East End was to create dozens of locals jobs.
Lottery chiefs were backing the launch of the Dalmarnock Legacy Hub, which was being built next to one of the Commonwealth Games venues.
The Big Lottery Fund handed over £1.25m towards the building costs of almost £5m for a community centre, which will include a GP surgery, children’s nursery, chemist and shop.
The services and facilities were lost during redevelopment work for the multimillion pound Emirates Arena complex, Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome and the Athletes’ Village.
Glasgow City Council agreed to sell a plot of land next to the arena for just £1 to the People’s Development Trust.
