Shettleston Community Growing Project

The SCGP’s main event of the year is our Family Fun Day, which takes place on the Sunday before the schools go back after the summer holidays. The FFD is run in partnership with Shettleston Housing Association and, thanks to donations from the Association and other generous sponsors, all attractions are free of charge. The 2015 event attracted over 300 visitors.

We celebrate National Volunteer Week each June by inviting all our volunteers to a Big Lunch to thank them for their efforts.

In March 2015 the SCGP held the Big Shettleston Sleepover to raise awareness of fuel poverty and to raise money to help those affected by it. 40 adults and children slept out overnight on the project site - in freezing conditions - and raised over £2,500 for their efforts.
