*** POSTPONED ***

This event has been postponed. A new Autumn date will be announced soon.

 

Are you affected by the school run at your school? Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) and De’ils On Wheels are hosting a half-day School Run Summit on the morning of Wednesday 20 September at Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre, 64 Balmoral Street, Glasgow G14 0BL

The event will bring together a wide range of people and organisations from the G13 and G14 postcode areas to share knowledge and experience of the school run. This will include pupils, teachers, parents, parent councils, local residents, community councils, Council officers, elected members and other interested parties.

The event will look at the wider community to see if this provides opportunities for alternative solutions to the school run issue such as:

  • How can we work more closely across the community to address the school run?
  • How can the school run help improve pupil attendance and attainment?
  • How can we better promote school initiatives to tackle the school run?
  • How can we increase active travel and reduce cars and vans on the school run?

This event is free to attend but booking is required! You can book online at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/drcet-school-run-summit

For more info please contact DRCET on 0141 433 0427 or email liz@dumbartonroad.com

Four staff members from local environmental charity Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) and De’ils On Wheels recently Braved the Shave to raise funds for DRCET and the Beatson Cancer Charity.

DRCET staff Neil Lovelock, Liz Dorward, Sarah Burgess and Paul Morrice all went under the clippers at the Brave the Shave joint fundraiser, which was held in late March at the Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre, which also held a cake sale to raise more money.

Neil Lovelock, DRCET Project Manager said,

“The response to the fundraiser has been totally overwhelming and we absolutely smashed our £2000 target – who would have thought a wee bit of hair could have raised over £6000! We are delighted to be able to present this cheque for £3000 to the Beatson Cancer Charity, an organisation which has provided much needed support to us in recent times.”

“A massive thanks to Lu at Battlefield Barbers; all the team at Heart of Scotstoun; to everyone that baked something for us; to everyone that came along to cheer us on; a huge thanks to Paul, Liz and Sarah for helping to turn my madcap idea into a reality and going above and beyond; and of course a huge, huge, huge thank you for everyone that sponsored us – it is very much appreciated!

Kirsty McDonald, Challenges & Community Fundraiser for Beatson Cancer Charity said,

“On behalf of Beatson Cancer Charity, I’d like to express my heartfelt thanks to the Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust for their incredible support and real determination to beat cancer. The Brave the Shave was a brilliant initiative and the funds raised by the team will have a direct impact on patients and families affected by cancer in our community. I would also like to thank everyone who very kindly sponsored and supported the team for all their generosity.”

The Beatson Cancer Charity are determined to beat cancer and committed to securing significant funding to support and enhance the treatment, care and wellbeing of current, former and future cancer patients and their families.

In the past week De’ils On Wheels, our community bike workshop has reached a couple of ‘grand’ landmarks.

Firstly we received our 1000th donated bike, which is totally amazing!

And secondly we reached 1000 likes on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/deilsonwheels!

So we would just like to say a thousand thank yous to everyone that has donated a bike to us or that has liked our Facebook page! Your support is very much appreciated.

One of the donations we recently received was a 1950s Raleigh bicycle which has only had one careful owner! It is great condition and we hope to have it back on the road in the near future! You can check out some of our refurbished bikes for sale here! (And the photo we posted on Facebook has also had over 1000 views!!!)

Also we are really in need of donations of ladies bikes so if you have one you no longer have a use for then please get in touch!
