Sguais Uibhist - East Camp, Balivanich
A community run squash club
We have renovated the old RAF squash facilities at East Camp. We now have a nice, bright, warm court with changing rooms and great shower facilities available for the community. For the past 12 years, the nearest publicly available squash facilities have been in Portree and Stornoway.
An Caladh (charitable organisation supporting people struggling with addiction) kindly gave us permission to renovate the building and to use it for our club. Without their support, the project would never have gotten off the ground.
After a round of fundraising, we were awarded a large Scottish Landfill Community Fund grant from An Treas Roinn Innse Gall as well as grants from our local councillors, Sealladh na Beinne Mòire and Benbecula Community Council. We have also secured sponsorship from
