Drumchapel Citizen Advice Bureau and Glasgow Eagles Receive Corra Foundation Grants

During the past year Corra Foundation has funded £8,075 in grants for local charities. Each year, the foundation distributes nearly £1 million through its Henry Duncan Grants programme to grassroots charities working in their local communities.

Within Glasgow Anniesland, the Drumchapel Citzen Advice Bureau has been awarded a grant of £4,500 towards the salary of the part-time Training Officer, and the Glasgow Eagles Special Needs Sports Club has been awarded a grant of £3,575 towards running costs of delivery of the tabletennis group for children and adults with a physical or learning disability.

These awards show how the Corra Foundation continues to be at the heart of funding local communities. I’m delighted these grassroots charities are receiving these funds, enabling them to continue their great work in the Glasgow Anniesland consitutency. Many of the Henry Duncan Grants go towards staff and running costs, which means that they are a lifeline for local charities in this tough financial climate.

Corra Foundation Chief Executive Fiona Duncan says “Corra Foundation is privileged to be able to contribute to the work of local groups across Scotland, supporting them as they make a real difference in the lives of many people, including vulnerable children and young people, isolated older people, unpaid carers, families experiencing poverty and people affected by disability or mental health issues. We are committed to our vision of a society in which people create positive change and enjoy fulfilling lives and distributing £1m a year via the Henry Duncan Grants is part of this.”

I have submitted a Motion to the Scottish Parliament to congratulate both the Drumchapel Citizen Advice Bureau and the Glasgow Eagles for being awarded grants.
