Celebrations, Certifications and Cakes

  • Our young people from The Mary Russell School achieved their Level 3 employability qualifications
  • The new Rouken Glen kitchen garden completion was cause for celebration

This week at Rouken Glen we were host to a very special tea party as a way of thanking the funders of our kitchen garden area.

This gave us the opportunity to bring everyone who was involved in its founding together with some of the young people that benefit from the garden and the DM Thomas kitchen.

Our young people from The Mary Russell School worked along with our wonderful volunteer Anne Dobson who helps provide all of our Pathways Programme participants with a warm and filling meal during the day.

We had visitors from Glasgow Hilton who were benefactors through the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People, Trades House and Waitrose - so it was a full house indeed!

We were also thrilled to have received funding through the Tesco Bags of Change initiative which donated £1,000.

An innovative and enjoyable celebration of the Kitchen Garden area.

Geoff Leask, CEO of Young Enterprise Scotland

Geoff's praise came as the group of young people were awarded their Level 3 Employability Award.

We were very impressed with the kitchen and gardens.

Alisha Khan, Glasgow Hilton

We are very grateful to those who have helped us establish this kitchen and use it to improve the lives of our young people.

Special thanks go to Trades House Glasogw and the STV Children's Appeal who donated items to our kitchen, Waitrose Community Matters who have donated to the garden and Robertson homes who took on the tough job of getting the painting and other jobs in the kitchen completed.
