CONNECT | The new short-listed good cause groups for the latest cycle of #Scotmid’s popular initiative #CommunityConnect were announced last week.

In this regular feature on Scotmid Co-op’s Facebook page, we shine the spotlight on each of the nine short-listed good cause groups (from our three regions – East, West and North), who could potentially be awarded funding of £15,000.

Today we focus on Finding Your Feet Amputee Charity from our West Region. With an office in Elliot Place, Finding Your Feet (FYF) provides information, emotional and practical support to families in Scotland affected by amputation or limb difference. 

Full story

The charity’s accessible clubs are free for amputees and include swimming, climbing, skiing, pilates, cycling and general fitness plus social ‘Ampu-Teas’ drop-in sessions where amputees meet for a coffee and a chat.

The Community Connect funding will be used to fund these activities plus an ambitious programme of new clubs as well as help with transport costs.
