Young people in Shettleston, Glasgow, are set to benefit from a teambuilding trip partly funded by affordable housing developer Lovell.

The Shettleston Community Growing Project has organised the weekend trip with the help of a £110 donation from Glasgow-based Lovell, which is currently building 29 homes for Shettleston Housing Association locally.

The new amenity flats will be located on Fernan Street.

The donation was raised through a quiz competition for the trip, which has been arranged through the Growing Project’s Smelly Welly Club.

The club runs holiday and after-school gardening activities for children and young people at the Growing Project’s community garden site in Eckford Street.

Lovell regional director Alan Taylor said: “We’ve all been impressed by the work of the Shettleston Community Growing Project and are delighted to have been able to contribute towards the weekend trip for the young gardeners.”
