AN ORGANISATION supporting young people in North Glasgow has received a significant cash boost.

Possibilities for Each and Every Kid (PEEK) provides wide-ranging services throughout the year for the children, young people and families of Sighthill, to support those experiencing poverty and inequality.

Now, they were donated £5,590 by representatives at Keepmoat Homes, which will go towards making a sustainable long-term difference to the lives of local families and supporting the community through activities and events.

Rebekah Corbett, Programme Development Manager at PEEK, said: “This much needed funding from Keepmoat Homes couldn’t have arrived at a better time for our families in Sighthill.

"As an organisation our mission is to support children, young people and families to improve their life chances and you will find our team in Sighthill, year-round, doing just this.  “The school holidays have always been a particularly hard time for our families and the current rise in food and fuel prices means things like family outings are an unachievable luxury.

"This support from Keepmoat Homes means we will be able to provide some much-needed respite in the form of fun family days out! Whether it's a day trip to a beach, a farm park or a day at the cinema, our families will make lifelong memories and our children will be able to share what they got up to on holiday.”

Alice Harley, Social Value Manager at Keepmoat Homes said: “We have been working in partnership with PEEK for several years and recognise the significant services that the ‘PEEK Project’ delivers, both to and for the Sighthill community. Without funding, employer support and input, it would not be possible for PEEK to continue with these much-needed programmes locally.  

“It is our pleasure to be able to continue supporting the PEEK Project and benefit those at the heart of the local community, now and for many years to come.”
