The Building Communities Fund has been created to continue this support, giving an extra helping hand to these projects and good causes.

Glasgow Gladiators Powerchair Football Club received a donation of £1,000 in December 2017.
The club offers the opportunity for people with a variety of health conditions including Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy and Spina Bifida the chance to play football, have a bit of freedom and fun, engage and socialize with their community and gain a sense of purpose and belonging.
The club was started and is run by the players themselves, with support from their parents, and currently has 13 team members. The much-needed donation will go towards increasing recruitment of both players and referees, with the aim to include as many participants as possible to the game who use a Powered Wheelchair. The support will also go towards some much-needed equipment, trophies and medals.
Joanne Casey, Director of Mactaggart & Mickel Homes, said: “We are delighted to support such a positive organisation as Glasgow Gladiators. We were impressed that the club was founded and run by the players themselves and for us to be able to contribute to its growth and success is fantastic. My recent visit to their training session was really inspiring and it was great to see the energy and enthusiasm of all the players right from the off!”
Idrees Ahmed, a member of the Glasgow Gladiators Powerchair team, said “I would like to thank Mactaggart & Mickel for helping us achieve our long term goal to create a Tournament based on equality and fairness, which will be called the Mactaggart & Mickel Magical Movement Tournament. This vital support will help us buy equipment for the Tournament and a Trophy and medals for everybody that takes part. We hope to recruit as many new participants as possible who use a Powered Wheelchair, no matter their ability, because equality is at the heart of everything we do.
