As you may be aware Shire Housing were awarded a grant from the Scottish Government which will allow us to provide essential financial aid to the various groups who are working in our communities and are delivering much-needed support to the people of East Ayrshire.
It is fantastic that we find ourselves in this position where we can enable these groups, often of volunteers, to continue to do the amazing work that they have been doing tirelessly thus far. The grant underlines our work as a community anchor organisation, helping support our Business Vison of Great Homes, Great People, Vibrant Communities.
The first round of donations were made yesterday to 8 different groups across East Ayrshire who are working tirelessly to get support to those who are needing it most, and we may be able to assist more. So if you are working for, or volunteering with, a resilience group providing essential support, or if you know of a group who are supporting your local community in any of these locations: Auchinleck, Catrine, Cumnock, Craigens, Dalmellington, Galston, Hurlford, Kilmaurs, Logan, Mauchline, Netherthird, New Cumnock, Newmilns, Patna or Rankiston then we may be able to offer support. Get in touch and we shall see if we can help. Contact Alan Thomas on 01290 428015 or email him, firstname.lastname@example.org
