Kames Capital supports Gullane Sports Development Trust

The Trustees are delighted to announce that we have received a corporate donation to meet the cost of purchasing 7 a side football and hockey goals for our new pitch. Kames Capital, the Edinburgh-based investment management business, has made the donation as part of the company’s Community Investment Programme, which supports development initiatives in the communities in which its staff live and work.

The Trustees wanted to ensure that the equipment we purchase is of the highest quality, ensuring both safety for participants and longevity. As a result of Kames Capital’s generous support we will achieve this, with the new goals providing a valuable benefit for many years to come.

In addition to our local youth football and hockey clubs, the equipment will be available for the wider community to use, an important consideration for Kames Capital when making this donation. In recognition of the company’s support, Gullane Hockey Club will also wear Kames Capital’s logo on their shirts next season.

This donation also enables the Trustees to focus on raising the £25,000 we need to complete the second phase of the project and the building of a changing and storage facility. So, while we have made fantastic progress, there is still much work to be done.
