We also have a leak in our roof which has been repaired on a number of occasions but we are still getting water in – if anyone could look at that then it would be appreciated.

Drumchapel Amateurs Clydebank Donation of money to support local community projects

Despite our name, Drumchapel Amateurs are a Clydebank based club.  We have our own grass park in Duntocher and we work in partnership with Clydebank Community Sport Hub in Whitecrook where all our players train. We have over 300 players and 60 volunteers and the club is growing all the time. 

Last year we hosted an October Camp that was FREE for all participants our main focus was to tackle holiday hunger with lunch and snacks being provided every day.  In addition to this we had Scotland Association Mental Health (SAMH) in attendance to deliver workshops on mental health & wellbeing.  We also had workshops focusing on rail safety and also Food & Nutrition.  Each day we delivered important messages in order to tackle sectarianism. 

Our hope is to deliver this camp again if we can obtain enough funding. The SFA in partnership with Cash Back Communities have agreed to provide some funding towards this but we are looking for additional funding to generate as many places as possible for vulnerable children over the holiday period.

The Vale of Leven Trust Alexandria and the Vale of Leven Donation of goods to support local health or wellbeing projects.

We run social walks in the area and we have become aware that not everyone has waterproof jackets suitable for walking. To prevent people's own jacket being soaked (and possibly there only one) we want to be able to offer a loan of a breathable waterproof jacket whilst out with us. The type of thing we are interested in would be: a mix of breathable waterproof jackets with hoods (small & medium and possibly a large.) We can have up to 10 on our walks so we would like to build up to that.

An iPhone 8 (refurbished is fine) so that our volunteer has a mobile phone when out on social walks (we would cover the sim card).

The Lennox Partnership Clydebank Donation of cash to support local health or wellbeing projects

We are currently working with 25 participants who are aged 50 or over - they have all come from complex backgrounds and 90% of them live in the highest deprived areas of WDC. We are requesting a donation of money so that we have the ability to purchase gym memberships or pay-as-you-go passes for our participants so that we can start a keep fit club one afternoon a week. We are also hoping to look into booking a gym hall or badminton court one day a week so that we can encourage our participants to exercise, release happy endorphins, take part in team building activities, form a bond with their key worker in a more relaxed environment and ideally break down some barriers that our participants are facing. After getting to know the individuals that we support, we have come to the conclusion that there is a real need for this club.

Dumbarton United Dumbarton Donation of cash to support local health or wellbeing projects

Match kit sponsorship or support in obtaining new training equipment, training kit, tracksuits, footballs and assistance to pay let fees and ongoing bills.

The people who will benefit this the most will be the group of 20 boys who train and play week in week out with Dumbarton United 2009. The kids are all currently 14/15years old and for some this is their only means of social interaction outside of school. It is also for some the only fitness activity they have.

With access to the benefits the boys will be able to reap the rewards of new kit and new training aids. In the current financial climate this will help elevate some of the hardship some parents in our group struggle with in accessing football. This kind benefit will also assist in keeping the monthly cost to parents to a minimum.
