Community group wins bursary to help get kids muddy

1 February 2018

Metal recycler, EMR’s site in Bellshill, has joined forces with Muddy Adventures to help local children enjoy the benefits of getting outdoors and enjoying nature.

EMR, based on Kirklee Road, has donated over £400 as part of a bursary programme, launched to help the local area. The proceeds have been donated to Muddy Adventures, which is a community group set up to engage with the local community, deliver educational programmes and bring children together to play and engage with nature.

The funding has been used to purchase play equipment for toddlers including; climbing nets, a shelter and an aluminium base camp kettle. EMR has also donated materials including pallets, tyres, metal drums and wooden boxes that will all be used for play equipment at their sites to help kids explore their creativity.

EMR Area Manager Tom Watts said: “We wanted to support the incredible work that Muddy Adventures do on a daily basis and it’s great to know that the money raised will make a real difference to the lives of local children. At EMR we put a great deal of importance on supporting the communities that are close to our sites. We are delighted to have a partnership with an organisation that makes such a difference and look forward to supporting them further in the future.”

Malissa Bell, founder of Muddy Adventures said: “We are extremely grateful to have been chosen by the EMR team to benefit from their bursary programme. The support from EMR is making a big difference to our project and the young people of Bellshill. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone at EMR!”

The community group, Muddy Adventures, has recently developed disused land off Footfield Road, and regularly holds events for local children. To find out more information visit - facebook.com/muddyadventures/
