Mount Vernon Community Hall Volunteers



Mount Vernon Community Halls are the latest local charity to benefit from John Lewis’s Divisional Community Investment Committee (DCIC) award.

The DCIC holds a sum of money that John Lewis branches can bid for, to support large projects beyond their own means. The Committee looks to see that these projects deliver significant measurable benefit, and make a real difference to the local community.

'The donation will help us complete the next stage of our plans to bring the hall into the 21st century and restore it to its rightful place as the hub for the community,' says the Hall Committee Chairman Mark Donohoe who submitted the DCIC application.

The Hall, based in the East End of Glasgow, is run by a group of volunteers on behalf of the local community. The facility currently delivers a number of regular activities and is accessed by more than 200 people per week, some of whom use more than one service.

These range from a daily Pre-school Playgroup to Karate, Dance and Spanish classes. In addition, they offer private hire facilities to members of the local community wanting to hold social gatherings, celebrations and parties.

'Funding awarded will be used to pay for the flat roof to be fully refurbished including the installation of the latest flat roof rubberised coating material which comes with a 25 year guarantee,' adds Mark.
