Glasgow Airport helps 40 local charities as part of birthday celebrations
40 community groups have received a cash windfall from Glasgow Airport. The 'Fab Forty' were announced at a civic reception in Paisley Town Hall yesterday as part of the airport's 40th birthday celebrations.
The awards fulfil a pledge by Glasgow airport to support organisations as part of the events to mark its 40th anniversary. Under the scheme, groups from across Glasgow, Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and West Dunbartonshire were invited to apply to the airport for special one-off £1000 grants.
The 'Fab Forty' were chosen from more than 150 entries. They include: Hampden Primary School, Calderwood Lodge School, Revive Scotland and SCAPA Street Residents Association. Also on the list are Clyde River Foundation, Govan Youth Club and Scottish Eagles Sport Club, all from Glasgow.
In Renfrewshire, the airport has provided grants to the 10K Road Race, Kibble Education and Care Centre, Johnstone Pipe Band, Accord Hospice, Auchenlodment Primary, Arkleston Primary, Linwood Community Council, Build Our Playground, St James Residents' Association, Whitehaugh Community Council and a host of other projects.
And in Port Glasgow, it has helped St Andrews Boy Football Club, Port Glasgow Boys Club, St Columba Church Playgroup, Opening Up Port Glasgow and St Stephens Enterprise Centre.
