|Glenfarg Village Hall - our regeneration journey|
In 2008, after a 15 year fundraising drive which culminated in the challenge to raise £40,000 in 40 days, our fabulous new village hall was opened. Find out more about this remarkable journey to keep the 100-year-old building at the heart of our community, and ready for another century of work.
The JourneyIt started as somewhat of a tall order, but one the Village Hall Committee was always convinced it could achieve - to regenerate the hall, increase community participation and reduce social isolation for local people by replacing the existing extension to the building to improve capacity and storage, and to provide better and more improved services for local residents and neighbouring communities.
While it may have been a big achievement from the outset, it was one which received overwhelming and essential support from a number of trust funds, including the Big Lottery in Scotland.
|Thanks to overwhelming support, locally, nationally and around the globe, our Another Brick in Wall Campaign where you 'bought' a brick for the new development for just £1 helped us achieve our ambitious £40,000 in 40 Day Appeal target to secure matching funding from a range of funds and agencies!|
To all those who donated to the £40,000 in 40 Days Appeal - thank you! We couldn't have done it without you.
