Motion text

That this House recognises the 25th Anniversary of the founding of an inspiring and life changing community project based in Govan, the GalGael Trust Foundation, which was founded by the late Colin McLeod whose vision for the project is still upheld today; notes that their woodcraft workshop maintains the proud Glaswegian traditions of hard work, community spirit and skilled craftwork while changing lives by restoring pride and achievement and developing skills; further notes that GalGael have shown that supporting the long-term unemployed with respect and a creative vision can have more long lasting and profound impact than traditional methods; supports GalGael’s efforts to be environmentally proactive by using Scottish timber from landfill as part of a culture within the organisation of respect and positive action; acknowledges that the continued success of GalGael is through it people and the inspiring volunteers and employees working in the heart of their communities; and wishes GalGael and all associated with the charity continued success in the many years to come.
