Our Community Chest winners are revealed at Hamilton

Last month, we launched our Community Chest project on social media asking the local community across Hamilton and the wider South Lanarkshire area to nominate good causes to share in its Community Chest of £1,000.

Worthy winners

The campaign generated over 85 nominations and two local charities were selected by our team in West Scotland to share the fund with each receiving a £500 boost to their bank accounts.

Each group makes a real difference to the local community in Hamilton and the wider South Lanarkshire area, and the following are delighted to have received £500:

  • The Wee Mobile Foodbank Lanarkshire - offering emergency food to families in need
  • OutLET – a Social Enterprise that provides inclusive outdoor programmes which offer a safe and engaging environment that supports children back into education.
