Rosewell Development Trust has been awarded a funding boost of £5,000 through the Clydesdale Bank Spirit of the Community Awards to recognise the important role it plays in the area.
Fifteen community groups across Scotland were selected to share funding of £75,000 to make a real difference in their local community.
The Rosewell trust works to secure quality and fit for purpose community facilities and aims to create a much-needed hub in the village to improve social interaction.
The charity was awarded £5,000 to construct an eco-friendly education centre in local woodland which will be used to expand and enhance the existing woodland training programme.
Debbie Crosbie, chairman of the Yorkshire and Clydesdale Bank Foundation, said: “Clydesdale Bank’s Spirit of the Community Awards aim to recognise and support the vital contribution that voluntary and charitable projects make to their local communities.
“This is our opportunity to say thank you to the incredible community groups across Scotland for the inspiring work they undertake.
“All of the successful organisations are extremely deserving winners which have been recognised for their role in their local communities with these awards from Clydesdale Bank.”
Dave Mackay, director of Rosewell Development Trust added: “The funding award we have received from Clydesdale Bank will enable us to go ahead with the construction of our eco-friendly education centre in our local woodland.
“The centre will help us to develop and improve our woodland management training programme within our community which in the long term will lead to the community taking over the management of the woods and will promote the crucial part woodlands play in sustaining the future of our planet.”
