Netball club net funding boost from Ross and Liddell
Monday, 08 May 2017
A GLASGOW netball club is jumping for joy after receiving a financial boost from a Scotland-wide community funding programme.
Bellahouston Junior Netball Club has received funding from the Ross and Liddell community bursary scheme – a project which provides support to organisations all over the country.
The club – which welcomes youngsters of all ages and abilities – introduces girls to the sport and allows them to play both recreationally and competitively.
The funding received from property management company Ross and Liddell will be used to fund new training equipment and kits for all four junior teams, to allow the teams to develop competitive squads for national leagues.
Rachel Holmes, coach and player said: “The funding is very much appreciated and will help the club to grow and help develop our brilliant players.
“The club encourages fun and sportsmanship, as well as the social aspects of the sport so it is an incredibly important part of the community.
“We have a fantastic group of youngsters who are enthusiastic and look forward to the group every week.”
Bellahouston Junior Netball Club trains on Monday evenings during the week in Hutcheston Grammar School, and attends matches and competitions on a weekly basis also.
The netball club was set up after the senior club recognised the need for a player pathway, which allows players to develop throughout the club and ultimately play competitively with the senior team. It also provides a fun environment to introduce netball into the community.
Players can join the club from the age of eight and play through to performance representation for Scotland at Under 17s level, and has around 60 children involved weekly.
Ross and Liddell specialises in property management and maintenance, as well as providing a comprehensive range of residential and commercial services, including sales, lettings, surveying and insurance.
Now in its sixth year, the Community Bursary Scheme was launched to provide support to organisations all over Scotland that make a vital difference in their community.
Bellahouston Junior Netball Club is one of 32 groups to receive funding in this bursary year.
Irene Devenny, managing director of Ross and Liddell, said: “We’re very proud to be providing funding to groups all over Scotland in this year’s community bursary scheme.
“Sport has a great ability to bring people together in a positive healthy environment. It is vitally important that local community organisations like Bellahouston Netball Club have access to funding to ensure that youngsters get the chance to play the sport they love.
“We are thrilled to offer our support and know that the funding will be put to good use.”
