Unsung Local Heroes in Ruchill and Possilpark


Unsung Local Heroes Ruchill and Possilpark

From this Friday 10th February Thriving Places Ruchill and Possilpark will be celebrating the very small acts of good neighbourliness that makes Possilpark and Ruchill good places to live. Our ‘Unsung Local Heroes’ initiative recognises the people that do the small things, the acts of kindness that we couldn’t live without. Think of your neighbour that goes for the messages, the guy who mows his elderly neighbours’ garden, or the friend next door that puts your bins out on bin day.

How does it work?

Throughout February and March, we will have 32 £10 Love to shop vouchers that we will be giving out as a ‘Thankyou’ to the people doing these small acts of citizenship. You can make the nomination either by picking up a form at Possilpark Library, Ruchill Community Centre, texting 07771881281 or posting to Thriving Places Ruchill and Possilpark Facebook Page . Once the nominations come in, we will select winners at random each month, and then send out the voucher for YOU to give to your unsung hero. All we ask in return is for a wee photo of you both, giving the gift!

Talk to us!

We will be doing streetwork and visiting groups around both communities for the next 2 weeks so keep an eye out for us. If you want to get the word out further in your street or community area, we also have materials we can give to help us to spread the word!
