Warriors pitch in

GLASGOW Warriors Rugby Club members lent a helping hand to lay the foundations to a new resource and accommodation centre in Milngavie.

The rugby club’s partnership charity Hearts and Balls Charitable Trust that help those with spinal injuries is working with Spinal Injury Scotland (SIS), who were bequeathed the ground floor of the Grade C listed building at Clober Farm in 2007 by Milngavie occupational therapist Vivian Donaldson.

An SIS spokesman said the charity has identified “huge potential” in the property and plans to convert it for use as accessible accommodation for those with spinal cord injuries.

In doing so, it aims to showcase a fresh approach to creating fully accessible home for those with disability.

On Wednesday, Glasgow Warriors volunteers put in a shift, helping to move approximately 70 tonnes of building materials so that the work can begin.

They also move about 30 tonnes of granite sand, 10 pallets of breeze block as well as helping with pouring in concrete foundations.
