A MOSSEND recycling project aiming to build Scotland’s first sporting centre of excellence for disabled people has been given a major boost.
National housing regeneration company Lovell has presented Yooz on Unthank Road with several thousand pounds worth of surplus building materials to sell to raise funds.
The money will go to Yooz’s Active4All charity fund which aims to build the £10 million centre on the outskirts of Bellshill.
Talks are currently ongoing between Yooz and North Lanarkshire Council to identify an appropriate site.
Baillieston-based Lovell has made the donation, which includes kitchen worktops, units and tiles, as part of a series of community initiatives to mark the company’s 10th anniversary in Scotland.
Yooz chief executive Ian Strachan said: “Our fundraising campaign is continuing to make progress, despite these tough economic situation, thanks to the support of organisations such as Lovell.”
