As already mentioned Active 8 is a charity based in Sauchie. In the past we have offered youth clubs, holiday programmes and many other opportunities for the young people of our community as well as hosting an annual christmas lunch for our older residents and a very popular hogmanay party.
In recent times due to COVID we have had to do things a little different, however our main aim has still been to support our local community this has been done by offering holiday porgrammes, online cooking courses as well as delivered fruit and veg packs to those in need within the community.
Active 8 are also responsible for putting up some christmas lights in Sauchie and we are keen to do this again this year in order to share some Christmas cheer with everyone.
Now that we are coming into the recovery phase of COVID 19 we are keen to continue to offer support to our local community and to also explore new opportunities that benefit our residents.
As you may be aware Sauchie Active 8 realises that a barrier for many to taking part in activities can be the cost that is why we are very passionate about keeping the cost down for everyone involved and many of our activities are free of charge or come at a very small fee.
The reason we have set up this pledge is to ask anyone who is in a position to spare some pennies to help us to continue to make our charity a success and to help those who are in need. We would be so grateful if you could help in any way, your donation will help massively. Due to Covid we have struggled to continue with our usual fundraising activities and we are struggling a bit for our xmas lights this year.
No amount is too small and all the money raised will go back into the community.
Thank you for taking the time to read our story and thank you for your continued support
