The Yard Dundee, a charity providing a safe place to play for disabled children, got a boost from local businesses led by Balfour Beatty. Local tradespeople donated their time and materials to give the well-loved play space a mini makeover.
Local tradespeople tackled a range of challenges at Rainbow House in Mid Craigie, making important improvements to the building, heating, plumbing and electrics for the benefit of everyone who uses the community centre. Rainbow House hosts The Yard Dundee every weekend, offering opportunities for adventure play, fun and friendship for disabled children, and a supportive community for their families.
This vital work was made possible by generously donated materials donated from Balfour Beatty’s supply chain partners and a grant from Postcode Local Trust, a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
“On behalf of our families, we are so grateful to Balfour Beatty and all the volunteers who gave up their time to help us get Rainbow House looking great again. There is nothing else like The Yard Dundee for disabled children and their families in Dundee, so we are delighted to be able to make our playground even more welcoming for them. We would also like to thank the players of People’s Postcode Lottery whose support allowed us to tackle this project.” – Gill Thomson, Play Team Leader at The Yard Dundee.
“We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to provide essential building services work and general repairs to Rainbow House. This was made possible by kind donations from our local supply chain. We would like to thank all of those who have helped Gill and her team with the next step in The Yard’s journey.” – Grant Arnott, Contracts Manager at Balfour Beatty.
