Awards for All Project at the Basement
The Big Lottery Fund “Awards for All” scheme has provided a grant to the Basement Project to further develop volunteer activities that will both benefit the volunteers themselves and the wider community.
One of the major parts of this project is an allotment that the young people will run themselves with the assistance of a project worker.
This will both teach how to plant, nurture and grow vegetables and also show the importance of healthy eating. Another important aspect involves volunteers working in schools explaining about homelessness and how to avoid the dangers of it, in a scheme called “Hamish” named after a homeless Highland Cow!
