West of Scotland Housing Association gives Glasgow families a summer to remember
Families in Glasgow enjoyed a packed programme of free summer activities organised by West of Scotland Housing Association (WSHA).
WSHA’s Meet, Eat and Play Programme was delivered with funding from Glasgow City Council’s, Holiday Hunger Programme in the North East and West of Glasgow, with an emphasis on providing healthy meals during the school holidays in conjunction with a range of engaging activities. The funding was secured by WSHA’s charitable subsidiary, Willowacre Trust.
The highlight of the programme was Community Events hosted in Barrowfield and Springburn which saw around 500 local people enjoy a variety of activities with one tenant in Springburn commenting it was “the best day we’ve had in years”.
Maisie O’Brien, community & support services manager at WSHA, said: “WSHA and its subsidiary Willowacre Trust are committed to tackling poverty and working to improve the lives of our tenants. We are delighted that around 1,000 people benefited from a healthy meal and participated in our activities.
“We will continue to explore innovative ways to deliver services that make a genuine difference to the lives of our tenants. We could not have delivered this programme without the funding support from Glasgow City Council and we will continue to identify different ways to offer support to our tenants and communities.”
