Up to £8,000 on offer for community groups in Edinburgh and Glasgow


Home assistance provider HomeServe launches campaign by giving local good causes the chance to secure a facilities makeover



Up to £8,000 on offer for community groups in Edinburgh and Glasgow

Leading home assistance provider HomeServe is giving two lucky community groups - one in Edinburgh and one in Glasgow – the chance to get their hands on up to £4,000 to fund an essential DIY project as part of a new community programme.

 

Applications are being welcomed from not-for-profit organisations, charities and volunteer-led groups with a community facility in need of a revamp, and a team of HomeServe’s Scotland-based engineers are on standby to support the project with their DIY, plumbing and drainage expertise.

 

The new community scheme was launched by HomeServe this week, and groups across Edinburgh and Glasgow have until Friday 9 September to submit their applications via Ketchup HomeServe’s online content hub, at http://ketchup.homeserve.com/what-we-care-about/our-communities/love-your-everyday-in-scotland-2016/

 

“Our engineers are helping to make life easier for Customers across Scotland every day and this is our way of using their skills and expertise to give something back to the local communities that we are part of.” said Greg Reed, Chief Marketing Officer, HomeServe. 

 

“Not-for-profit organisations, community groups and charities are the heartbeat of local communities and we want to help them carry on doing what they do best by giving them a fantastic facility to work in.

 

“We’re really looking for a group that makes an on-going, positive contribution to its community, which could be through regular activities or events that benefit local people. The two winning applications will get the support of our Scotland engineers to carry out up to £4,000 worth of work on their community facility, so it’s a fantastic opportunity for a community group to benefit from essential and potentially life-changing DIY work.”

 

All applications received will be put forward to a HomeServe judging panel and the winner will be announced during the week commencing 12 September 2016. HomeServe’s team of engineers plan to undertake all work later the same month.
