A CAMPAIGN has been launched to save a popular Drumchapel social club from closing down.

An emergency funding plea has been launched to save the Goodyear Sports and Social Club (GSSC) which has taken a hit following tough coronavirus restrictions.

A GoFundMe page, set up by Thomas Clark, says the “valued” facility has seen a reduction in usage – like many other businesses across the country – and needs recovery efforts to

bring customers back through the doors.

The process of re-establishing a management committee is currently underway to transform the site by ensuring its immediate future and carrying out essential maintenance.

It is hoped a total of £60,000 will be raised for the Duntreath Avenue site.

The campaign has a long way to go, but it’s off to a promising start with a total of £1740 so far.

Speaking via the GoFundMe page, the management committee said: “We need to raise emergency club capital funds to start this four-stage business recovery journey. We are fully committed to the shared aim of securing the GSSC as a key historical hospitality community resource.

“The Goodyear Social Club is all about positive memories for many local people and families.
