Gavin welcomes £10,000 funding for Our Place Our Families
August 28, 2015
Gavin Newlands, the MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire and North, visited Our Place Our Families in Renfrew to congratulate the OPOF team on successfully securing £10,000 worth of funding from the Big Lottery’s Awards for All Scotland – enabling the local group to expand into the Erskine area.
The Our Place Our Families group based in Renfrew will use the funding for a series of family fun days aimed at identifying and addressing the concerns of the local community.
Gavin Newlands, the MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, said:
“I am delighted that Our Place Our Families have been successfully awarded £10,000 from the Big Lottery. Diane and the OPOF team do fantastic work in our local community and this vital cash will allow them to continue to go from strength to strength.”
Diane Booth, Project Manager of OPOF, said:
“We are delighted to receive £10,000 worth of funding from the Big Lottery – this gives us a great opportunity to expand into the Erskine community through a series of family-focused fun days and events.
“We will strive to bring the community of Erskine more together and add a sense of pride back into the community.
“Without these types of funding opportunities, provided by the Big Lottery Fund, vital work like this could not happen. We have already done this type of work in the Renfrew area with great success and we are looking forward to working in Erskine.”
