Residential Accomodation for Newport Coming Soon!

12th Dec 2016

We are delighted to announce that The Boys' Brigade NI District has received funding from the Alpha Programme to commence work on the residential phase of our project at Newport. This is very welcome news and a great boost to our fundraising efforts.

The Alpha Programme was established in 2008 by Alpha Resource Management, a dedicated waste management and green energy company based at Mullaghglass, a Lagan Group Company. Tax on landfill waste, introduced in 1996 enables operators of landfill sites to contribute money to community projects that meet environmental objects. The grant programme is managed by Groundwork NI.

Commenting on the announcement, Drew Buchanan, MBE Chairperson of the Trustee Body of The Northern Ireland District of The Boys' Brigade said:
'We are delighted to receive this funding from the Alpha Programme. It will make a real difference to us. We can now deliver phase 3 of our Headquarters, Conference, Training and Residential Centre and we are thrilled to be able to commence the conversion of three of the classrooms into dormitory style residential accommodation and also a further classroom into a modern training facility. This funding brings us a step closer to bringing our residential training to our new home at Newport. We look forward to commencing residential training at Newport; to continue the training and developing of Boys and Young Men for leadership roles in Boys' Brigade and to creating lasting memories and a legacy of leadership training at Newport.'

The Boys' Brigade was one of three projects in the Lisburn area selected for funding in the October round of applications and will receive £49,764 towards the renovation of three existing classrooms into dorm style accommodation.
