GESH Fundraising

Greater Easterhouse Supporting Hands (GESH) is a community centre with a difference. GESH is situated in the heart of Easterhouse and offers a positive hub of community, friendship and care to over 600 members, and particularly those with mental and physical disabilities. But GESH really is a community facility for everyone – people around the Greater Easterhouse area use the centre on a weekly basis as a thriving social club and as an entertainment, activity and political venue. GESH plays a central role in the local community: the centre holds bowls, country and western dancing, local councillor surgeries, community council meetings, bingo nights, exercise classes, and numerous activities for disabled people throughout the local area. 

BL Sponsors Women’s Centre

The woman’s Centre is used by women resident in the East End of Glasgow it invites women to partake in a wide range of activities and is for women from a range of diverse backgrounds, with many facing personal challenges such as: loneliness, poverty, physical and mental health issues, relationship difficulties, addiction issues, stress or low self-esteem. The centre provides the opportunity for the women to be surrounded by a friendly network of people, which helps each member move forward with their personal issues. It acts as a form of escapism from their daily lives. As well as providing access to course work activity, local women shared their own experiences, This provides each of the women with personal time to strengthen their self-worth, self-esteem & increase confidence levels and socialisation skills. The group activities are relaxed & enjoyable and take place in a safe and secure environment.
