During 2019, kind-hearted WSHA staff fundraised for their chosen corporate charity in a number of ways including the Kiltwalk, charity auctions and dress down days. WSHA staff also donated nearly 60 Christmas gifts to the children supported by North Glasgow Family Support.

Brian Gannon, chief executive officer of WSHA, said: “Everyone at WSHA is delighted to have raised this fantastic amount for an organisation that does such excellent work to support families in North Glasgow. Once again our staff went the extra mile to raise funds for the charity, including doing our first ever Kiltwalk, to help to make a positive difference and enhance the services that NGFS can offer families.”

Paul Carberry, Action for Children director for Scotland, added: “We are very grateful to West Scotland Housing for raising more than £8000 to support our North Glasgow Family Support service in the city. This money will make a significant difference to the service and will be used to provide trips and activities for children and families we support and help create memories which will last a lifetime.”

During 2020, WSHA will fundraise for Willowacre Trust, its charitable subsidiary, to help increase the provision of tenancy sustainment initiatives such as starter packs and household goods.
