As we kick off 2021, our Community Trust team have received a major boost with a very generous £20,000 donation from the Castansa Trust.

Queen of the South Community Trust has a vital role to play across Dumfries and Galloway working on health, social inclusion, and education as well as providing community facilities. We are involved in a number of projects and activities across the region. From the essential breakfast club at the North West Community campus to various kids clubs, soccer camps and walking football that we hold throughout the year at the QOS Arena, there is something for all age groups. We are also involved with Cash for Kids and work closely with the local charities providing food for those in need via The River of Life Church or the local food bank.

On behalf of the QOS Community Trust, Dan Armstrong said “The past twelve months have been difficult for everyone and we have been unable to function at normal levels, however, we continue to think of new ways to engage with the community. Like other charities, in order to do what we do we rely on grants, fundraising and of course sponsorship. So to receive such a substantial donation means so much to us. We would therefore like to place on record a very big thank you to the Castansa Trust. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone else who contributes to the QOS Community Trust”.
