Health, disability & well-being

Funding level: £10,001 to £25,000

Description

The disabled wheelchair supporters of St.Mirren Football Club have a very poorly protected area to view football matches of their local club.As a result many decide not to go to matches purely based on the weather as the area of the ground earmarked has very little protection from adverse weather conditions.
They also have a low view rather than a raised view and TV cameramen often block their views.
Our proposal is to build a raised view platform area with wheelchair access suitable for both the disabled supporters and their friends family and carers in an area of the ground which will solve both these problems.
