Glasgow Building Preservation Trust have been awarded a grant of £2,500 from the Spirit of Calton Fund to contribute to the development of an Activity Plan and an Equality Plan as part of the development of the project to repair and adapt the local West Boathouse into a publicly accessible building that engages with the heritage of the area and encourages public access onto the water.
This award will help ensure that the project proposals are developed to maximise local community engagement, ensuring that the West Boathouse serves the local community in the future as well as it has served the rowing clubs in the past.
Spirit of Calton is part of Spirit of 2012’s Glasgow Commonwealth Games legacy programme Fourteen; instigated by Spirit’s investment in the Glasgow 2014 XX Commonwealth Games and its legacy around the UK. 14 communities across the UK have been identified as Fourteen communities that will each receive a resource budget of up to £250,000 over three years to invest in activity that local people themselves believe will make a difference to well-being and happiness within their community. Spirit of Calton is the local name for the Fourteen programme in the Calton.
Funded from the Spirit of Calton – A Fourteen Community.
The Fund is administered by Foundation Scotland.
