Live Borders and Concrete Repairs Limited join forces.

Live Borders and Concrete Repairs Limited (CRL) join forces to support physical activity for low income families.

Live Borders has secured £3,750 funding from CRL to support Live Borders delivery of free physical activity opportunities for low-income families who may be struggling to access activities with the challenging cost of living crisis.

This support builds on the success of the Family Activity Pass that Live Borders operated through the summer of 2022.

CRL are a leading concrete repair and asset maintenance contractor based throughout the UK. CRL recently worked on the iconic Netherdale stand repairs in Galashiels, and through this relationship have agreed to partner with Live Borders to extend the Family Activity Pass alongside support from their supply chain, including Kestral.

Murray Soutar – CRL Regional Director (Scotland & Ireland):

“We were proud to be involved in this iconic project and equally proud to support the local community. There is nothing more important than keeping young people active and income should be no barrier to this, we are happy to have helped this programme succeed.”

Graeme Murdoch (Active Communities Manager) said:

“The cost of living crisis presents a real threat to families physical and mental health and wellbeing and we are excited to work in partnership with CRL.

“It is fantastic to secure this additional funding from CRL, and it will be targeted at those families most in need of support.

We want to thank CRL for opening more opportunities for our local communities to be healthier, happier and stronger.”

Live Borders will be coordinating with referral partners to identify those most in need, as well as making direct approaches to those families already identified to be struggling to pay for activities.
