Disability Shetland secures funding

DISABILTY Shetland has received a grant of £5,000 from the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland in support of the charity’s recreation club.

The activity provides activities such as football, netball, table tennis, dance, new age kurling, swimming, carpet bowls, adapted games and gym for people with disabilities.

Lloyds TSB Foundation chief executive Mary Craig said this was the seventh award they had made to Disability Shetland.

“We first funded them in 1992, and twenty years later it is fantastic to see how much the organisation has developed.

“The recreation club does great work and makes such a difference to the people it supports. It is great to know our funding is having such a positive impact on the lives of people in Shetland.”

The grant will help pay the salary for the club-coordinator for the current financial year.
