If you feel you can help us help young people participate in sport and outdoor activities, we have a JUST GIVING page HERE .
Body and Sole is the Cordiners’ own charity and aims to provide funding for footwear to enable young people in Glasgow who could not otherwise afford to do so to participate in sports and outdoor activities, such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. Although only started in 2017-2018, the project is growing very rapidly and we anticipate the need to attract funding from other sources if we are to meet the enormous need. So far we have provided support to an Asylum-Seekers Football Team and several schools including Smithycroft Secondary for its flourishing Duke of Edinburgh Award project, Haghill and St Bernard’s Primary Schools. We were also delighted to be major funders of the rebuilding of Glengoyne Lodge at Aughengillan for the 77th Glasgow Disabled Scouts, one of the most transformative of all outdoor activities for young people with additional needs.
Deacon Bergman, with ExDeacon Dr Iain Lennox and Liam Entwistle, visited St Bernard's Primary, Nitshill to present a cheque for £8000 to PEPASS (Physical Education, Physical Activity & School Sport) on behalf of Body and Sole.
