Queen’s Park Score With Charity Partnership

Queen’s Park Football Club was delighted to help out a fantastic children’s charity in Glasgow’s south side by donating furniture and TVs.

The club donated the items from Lesser Hampden to the Jeely Piece Club – a charity dedicated to helping children learning through play and supporting families, based in Castlemilk.

The two organisations share a commitment to their communities, and both have strong values around supporting, mentoring and nurturing young people.

Player Peter Grant and Head of Commercial Kieran Koszary took the time out to visit the charity at their Playzone to meet with kids, staff and volunteers and Peter also took part in a Question and Answer session with the youngsters.

Kieran said: “The Jeely Piece Club is a fantastic, well-established charity that an enormous amount of good work with kids and their families, encouraging children to learn through play and at the same time ensuring they are active. The vison and purpose of the charity matches with the ethos of the football club as we aim to help support the local community and empowering people to make positive changes in their lives.”

Tracey Black, Chief Executive of The Jeely Piece Club, said: “We are delighted and grateful to receive the donation. Some of what has been given can be used by us in our work here in Castlemilk and beyond, and the rest of it has been distributed to families in the area.

“Queen’s Park, like us, are rooted in the community in this area of Glasgow and we share a desire to make a real difference in people’s lives and well-being.”
