Veitchi Support Local Community – Grow 73Scroll to content
Veitchi were delighted to present a cheque for £1000 to Grow 73 a charity set up to develop outdoor space in the community into useable and accessible space for all to enjoy.
Their current project is at Overtoun Park, Rutherglen where they are looking to transform 3 unused bowling greens into a community garden where all generations can work and learn together to grow fruit, vegetables and plants.
Eugenie Aroutcheff, chief executive said “The garden will be a place to meet new friends, to come together with the common purpose of making a positive impact on the environment and the local community by transforming an unused piece of land.”
The project is currently in its early stages of development and the charity are hoping to obtain planning from the council in the near future. They have already had some funding approved and were looking for additional financial support which Veitchi were delighted to offer.
Jim Stewart Group FD said “The business has been resident in the Rutherglen area for over 50 years and it is an area that has given us so much over the years. It has been an excellent base and provided us with so many exceptional members of staff. It seems only fair that we give back to the community and we saw this as an excellent opportunity to do just that being a project with such a wide community benefit.”
