The Glasgow Netball Association and Victoria Park Community Trust along with other partners are working to raise funds for upgrading and expanding the existing courts at Victoria Park. The enhanced facility will feature outdoor netball and basketball courts, along with a versatile public space designed to accommodate various activities including cycle skills, roller skating, skateboarding, parkour, urban sports and community events.

The project is looking to regenerate an area of the park that is already well used to make it an accessible, usable, bright and inviting space to play both Netball and Basketball. 

The installation of rotating posts mean that both sports can share the space and resurfacing the ground will provide much needed drainage to the space and avoid large puddles forming. 

The space can be used by other groups such as Junior Parkrun for warm up and local children’s cycling groups for a space to learn. The space will be free to use for all park users and a donation towards it would be appreciated from those who can.

We need to raise £5,000 from the community to support other funds that we are applying for. We are applying for a number of funds including Sport for All, SportScotland facilities fund, the landfill fund and postcode lottery to name a few. Some of these funds come with conditions that third party funding is secured and we are looking to do this through MyParkScotland.

Gift Aid Declaration

Boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 donated.

Gift Aid is reclaimed by MyParkScotland from the tax you pay for the current year. Your address is needed to identify you as a UK taxpayer.

The additional funds generated through Gift Aid donations are invested in the park endowment fund which supports the long term management of our wonderful parks.

Adding Gift Aid to a £10 donation increased the amount claimed by MyParkScotland to £12.50

After paying platform and management fees, this typically means that an online donation of £10 becomes a park investment of £11.53 (after paying platform and management fees).

So the project receives your £10 donation and the ‘extra’ £1.53 is invested in the Parks4Life endowment fund which supports the long term future of our wonderful parks.

Please notify MyParkScotland if you:

- want to cancel this declaration
- change your name or home address
- no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code
