The Roslin branch and club is celebrating a £20,000 funding boost from SUEZ Communities Trust for their project to refurbish their premises.

 The main work needed is the upgrade of the toilet facilities and to provide a disabled, easy access cubicle. There are also parts of the flooring that requires replacement.

 John Denholm, chairman, said: “Roslin branch are very grateful to receive this much-needed grant to improve the club and hope it will encourage membership and use of the building by the local community.”

 Marek Gordon, chairman of SUEZ Communities Trust, added: “SUEZ Communities Trust provides funding awards through the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund (SLCF). We were delighted to be able to offer funding to the Roslin branch and club of Royal British Legion Scotland.”

 SUEZ Communities Trust is “an independent, not for profit funding organisation dedicated to making lasting improvements to community life and the natural environment. The trust is a registered Environmental Body through the Landfill Communities Fund and an Approved Body through the SLCF.” It distributes funds contributed by SUEZ Recycling and Recovery UK.

 The trust’s funding programmes are “designed to improve a broad range of publicly accessible amenities which benefit a wide cross-section of the community. Whether improving a local play area or a nationally significant historic building, each project has the potential to transform the community in which it is based.”
