As we announced in February, we were one of three organisations that were selected for the University of Glasgow’s ‘Find a Solution’ programme. This programme allows students to gain valuable work experience whilst using skills they have gained during their studies and is run by the University of Glasgow Settlement.
The Settlement was initially established in the late 19th century by pioneering female students, with the aim of helping support people in the poorer areas of Glasgow, and over the years it has contributed to a number of invaluable services and projects across the city. We’re proud to be a part of this rich history!
The development (Ref No 11/01264/DC), which was given planning approval in October 2012, will see a new supermarket built along with associated works including access formation and road works/improvements.
As part of our monthly newsletter (you can subscribe here) we have a section called Friend Focus where we highlight the great work that is being undertaken by one of the many organisations that we work with.
Our latest Friend Focus features Glasgow Local Food Network, which is an informal network of community organisations and individuals from across the Glasgow area that are passionate about local food and striving to produce more of what we eat and eat more of what we produce.
We recently helped to complete the development of the school garden at Corpus Christi. Working in partnership with the school and pupils, Glasgow Community Safety Services and volunteers from the Clydesdale Bank a small plot of land has been converted from a simple turfed area into a fantastic community garden featuring raised beds, fruit trees and bushes, pathways and wildflower areas.
We are delighted to announce that not only were we shortlisted as one of the three finalists for The Evening Times Streets Ahead awards Best Environmental Initiative but (cue the drum roll…) WE WON!! Woo Hoo!!
So a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that has supported us over the years – all our volunteers, members, staff, directors, partners, funders, customers – way too many people to mention – we couldn’t have done it without you!
