UNION SQUARE BURSARY AWARDS 2011.

Banchory-based charity SCILL (Supporting Children in Learning for Life) had a successful funding application to Aberdeen’s Union Square shopping centre.

The bursary donation of £1,500 will be spent on revamping and updating the SCILL library, which is a valuable resource to members and their families. It provides a wide choice of information books, games and books to benefit children with a range of additional support needs.

A new laptop has also been provided from The Sony Centre in Union Square, which will mentor SCILL over the next 12 months.

SCILL plans to hold a new library launch once all the additional titles have been received later on this year. Membership of SCILL is free and open to all, with members currently from all over Aberdeen city and shire.

SCILL’s next coffee morning and library session will be held from 9am to 11.30am on Monday (September 5) at Hill of Banchory Community Centre, Activity room two. All are welcome and refreshments will be provided.
