It’s two years since greenspace scotland launched MyParkScotland and they have been supporting groups with their crowdfunding projects through training, mentoring and workshop sessions. They have now pulled all of this experience together, and worked with crowdfunding experts at Twintangibles, to prepare the MyParkScotland Crowdfunding Resource Kit which was launched recently.

The MyParkScotland Crowdfund Resource Kit has been designed to help groups wanting to crowdfund for parks and greenspace projects.

Funded by Awards for All, Scotland the Resource Kit introduces and explains the concept of crowdfunding and helps groups plan, run and deliver their crowdfunding campaigns. Included within the Resource Kit is the Crowdfunding Campaign Planning Worksheet, this editable document is designed to help groups think about key elements of their crowdfunding campaign including growing your “crowd”, getting the messaging right, how to get that message across and what to do when your campaign is complete.

greenspace scotland has announce that they have received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to kick-start the development of an Endowment Fund for Scotland’s parks.

This project will develop a £1million endowment fund for Scotland’s parks.  It is the first step towards our ambition for a multi-million endowment fund which will help to keep Scotland’s parks in good heart for future generations to enjoy. Over the next 3 years, the HLF grant of £500,000 will be matched with donations from individuals, businesses and trusts to raise that first magic million. The funds will be invested to provide an endowment to support Scotland’s parks in perpetuity.

Julie Procter, Chief Executive of greenspace scotland said:
“Scotland’s parks are well-used and much loved. We want to ensure they continue to be cherished and nurtured so that we hand them on in good heart for our children and grandchildren to enjoy. The Scottish Parks Endowment Fund is an easy and simple way for everyone who uses and loves Scotland’s parks to make a donation, large or small, to support our treasured parks. And it’s a great way to grow the value of your donation: the HLF matching grant means that every £10 donated with gift-aid, becomes a £25 investment in the Park Endowment fund; every £100 becomes £250 and so on.”

YokerCommCampus_photoLocal charity, Yoker Resource Centre, has been awarded £478,230 by the Big Lottery Fund.

The Centre will deliver a new service for people with a disability living in the communities of the West of Glasgow working in partnership with Volunteer Glasgow and support from the Health and Social Care Alliance. The INCLUDED project will work with people to increase their social connections and to access activities of their choice at a time and place that suits them.

Thomas Munro, Chair of the Yoker Resource Centre Committee said, “Our community is very grateful for this investment, which I am certain will have a hugely positive impact on the lives of some of our most disadvantaged residents”

Big Lottery Fund Scotland Chair, Maureen McGinn, said: “I am delighted that The Yoker Resource Centre has been successful in securing a Big Lottery Fund grant. The funding will make a big difference where it is needed most and I wish the Yoker Resource Centre every success as it goes on to develop and expand its project for the benefit of their local community.”

In 1981 a number of local residents in Yoker formed a local action group. Within two years The Yoker Resource Centre was opened in the disused Yoker Primary School Annex. The Centre has been successfully delivering services in partnership with its local communities ever since.

WeGoPedal_logo_webWe are delighted that in partnership with LINKES Bike Club and the Whiteinch Bike Club we have secured funding from Cycling Scotland’s Cycle Friendly and Sustainable Communities Fund (CFSCF) to launch our West Glasgow Pedallers We Go Pedal! project.

UPDATEhere you can read all our blog posts related to the We Go Pedal project

The purpose of the CFSCF is to support groups to encourage cycling in their community and to deliver a sustainable cycling project. The West Glasgow Pedallers We Go Pedal! project will:

  • encourage people of all ages and abilities living in west Glasgow (including Yoker, Scotstoun, Whiteinch and Knightswood) to start cycling or cycle more in their community
  • promote cycling as an active, alternative and complimentary means of travel to existing means of travel
  • provide learning and development opportunities for people in west Glasgow including improving cycling skills, cycle maintenance skills, health and wellbeing and confidence

We set up a short survey to find out whether people cycle and if so how often – many thanks to everyone that took the time to complete the survey – we had 128 responses which was fantastic and the information gathered will help inform how we deliver the project!

To find out more about the project please read on below or contact the DRCET office! Happy Cycling!
