Older people to access SPL club activity

30/01/2013
Funding / Community Engagement
Almost 1,000 older people will be offered the chance to attend an activity programme at their local SPL club over the next two years, thanks to a £214,500 grant from the Scottish Sport Relief Home and Away Programme.

The SPL Trust has become the latest beneficiary of the £5 million fund, which is supporting projects that will help create a lasting legacy from the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

This award is the final tranche of the ‘home’ element of the programme which is jointly funded by the Scottish Government and Sport Relief.

Over £2.3m has already been distributed to projects across Scotland designed to help the vulnerable and those facing challenges in their lives.
