A West Lothian community sports club is celebrating its tenth anniversary and asking for support from local businesses.
The Broxburn United Sports Club (BUSC) caters to the local communities of Broxburn, Uphall and the surrounding holidays and has 700 members in the club who play sport of all ages.
To continue for another ten years, the club needs financial help and is appealing to local businesses and any other interested parties who may be able to help.
It currently costs BUSC £ 250,000 per year to provide their services and the help they receive from charity funds barely covers the costs.
Leigh Lauder, Business and Development Manager at Broxburn United, said: “We have relied on the grants for the last ten years, but they have dried up, so we are in the midst of a cash flow crisis.
“We are truly a community club and want to involve the local community – all local businesses are welcome to join us and help us with what we do in Broxburn.”
They have soccer teams of different age groups but it is not the only sport at the club and they have plenty of other activities to get everyone in the area involved.
BUSC runs a general fitness program in conjunction with local schools, and also brings kids to the club for five-week sessions during the school year and provides work experience for older kids considering a career in sports. .
They also offer activities such as outdoor fitness sessions for women every Monday and run a walking football club for those who are unable to endure the rigors of a full match.
The club will host an engagement party on Thursday March 26 at Albyn Park in Broxburn for all interested parties who think they can help but would like to learn more about how the club works.
