Golden Friendships received a game-changing sum of £100,000 thanks to the residents of Oronsay Crescent in Old Kilpatrick sharing a jackpot win. Golden Friendships promotes social inclusion by organising entertainment, events and fun activities for everyone, and supports up to 4,500 vulnerable community members every month.

Part of the funds will be used to help purchase a wheelchair-friendly minibus to take its patrons, many of whom experience mobility issues, on cultural trips around Scotland and the UK. And founder Jim McLaren couldn’t hide his delight.

He said: “This funding has all been made possible by players of People’s Postcode Lottery and will make an enormous impact on the opportunities this humble charity can create for our community. We are eternally grateful.”

He added: “For us, social inclusion is about improving the opportunities and dignity of those disadvantaged in our community.

“We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved since we started in 2018 but you always want to do more – and now we can.”
