Field of Dreams update

Just under an acre of land became available at McGavigan’s field in 2007 and, having raised the necessary £200,000,  Deafblind Scotland bought the plot in 2012, and secured planning permission to create a purpose-built 8,900 sq ft Learning and Development Centre for deafblind people.  “Field of Dreams” is ideally placed to serve as a Scottish Centre of Excellence serving deafblind adults who simply cannot get around independently without both sighted help, and easy access to transport.

To date we have raised and sourced £1.11M  of the £1.30M needed to bring the building into being, including £163,000 raised by members and friends.  However, building costs tend to increase with time and we urgently need more funds to be able to commit to start.  More detail about this is given on Deafblind Scotland’s website.

Deafblind Scotland is currently headquartered in Lenzie and it is a real privilege to have such a major Scottish Charity here.  If you can help to find ways of bridging the funding gap, please get in touch with Deafblind via their website.
