3D Drumchapel We are a charity based in Drumchapel in the West of Glasgow working with children and families providing a range of activities and support. Please note that our services are available to families in Drumchapel, Knightswood and Yoker.
Our monthly Family John Muir Group had a fantastic time recently exploring the woods in the spring sunshine! They got up to all sorts, including making some brilliant dens, just see for yourself.
Here's a great wee video showing off their den-making talents: https://www.facebook.com/3DDrumchapel/videos/1897870517122600/
Easter's drawing near and as usual we're taking a wee break from some of our regular sessions and doing some fantastic one off events instead!
We're going to be celebrating our 20th anniversary with an Open Fun day at 3D on Tuesday the 4th with plenty of different activities for all ages. We're also going to be making a timeline celebrating both us and Drumchapel, so come along and lend your voice!
On Tuesday 11th we're running an exciting Family Easter Trail, where everyone gets involved in a treasure hunt! It's going to be a blast, so sign up now.
On Thursday the 13th we're taking over Garscadden Woods with a whole range of other organisations for an Easter Outdoor Extravaganza. There'll be loads of stalls, events, activities, games and tons to do, so bring the whole family and your friends too and come join in the fun!
A professor at Glasgow University has helped raise £675.75 for us by running not one, not two, but a breath-taking TWENTY-FIVE 10km races!
Ade Kearns, Professor of Urban Studies at Glasgow University, presented the cheque on Friday at our Family Lunch, having managed to complete all the races well ahead of schedule. Originally planned to stagger all the road races over two years, the pacy pedagogue the sped through all twenty-five in just 16 months.
The professor’s achievement might help to inspire anyone whose new year’s resolution to get more exercise hasn’t managed to get out of the blocks in January. Despite running the distance between Glasgow and Newcastle, he was no race-running veteran. He said: “I had only ever run one 10k before doing this. It was a challenge!” Prof. Kearns has taken a keen interest in Drumchapel through the GoWell project, a research and learning programme that aims to investigate the impact of investment in housing, regeneration and neighbourhood renewal in Glasgow on the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities.
Sharon Colvin, Project Manager at 3D Drumchapel, said: “we’re absolutely delighted with Prof. Kearns’s donation, and really impressed with his determination and stamina!”
“His donation will help us to continue to offer a wide variety of vital activities and services for families, to provide support, strengthen relationships, and empower positive change"
