Big Lottery Funding

The Annexe has been successful in being awarded a grant of £628,000 by The Big Lottery Fund to support the Connects Project.

The Connects Project has been successfully running for three years and was recently runners up at the Evening Times Community Champions Awards for North West Glasgow.

This further funding for west Glasgow will support 900 isolated and vulnerable older residents, age 60 plus, over a five year period. It will provide activities such as music classes, meditation, art classes, singing groups, relaxing therapies and self-help groups. The initiative will help older people to re-connect with their community, meet new friends and stay healthier longer.
