scotmid fund new television for bieldResidents of Bield’s Stewart Court in West Calder can enjoy their favourite television programmes on the big screen after receiving a generous grant from supermarket chain, Scotmid.

The huge 50 inch television was purchased thanks to the Scotmid Community Grant, an initiative that helps deserving causes throughout Scotland.

The residents at Stewart Court, a sheltered housing development, had previously loved their old television, which sadly broke and had not been replaced due to a lack of funds.

However, local Manager Gwen Gilholm became aware of the Scotmid Community Grant and decided it was a great way for the residents to obtain a new flat screen television.

Gwen said: “I had actually planned to purchase a new television for residents before my retirement at the end of August, but the Scotmid Community Grant was a great way to get one now.

“The residents are delighted with it. The Saturday night social is now a big hit with the new big screen.”

Bield – a registered charity in their 41st year of business – has grown from humble beginnings, opening its first housing development in Bo’ness to become a major supplier of a wide range of housing and services for around 20,000 older people across 22 local authorities.
