The Re-Tune initiative works with a number of ex-service personnel agencies such as Help for Heroes. The carefully devised programme, which will be delivered in a fully equipped workspace in the east end of the city, has been designed to help boost the social skills and confidence of those who have recently left military service.
David McHarg from the Re-Tune project said:
“This award from the FlightPath Fund will be invaluable to the participants at The Re-Tune project. It will allow us to build several new stringed instruments, one of which will be chosen and exhibited at the Craftex show within The Trades House in Glasgow later this year. We cannot thank the committee of the FlightPath Fund enough for their support and look forward to working with them more in the future.”
A spokesperson for the FlightPath Fund said: “This is an incredibly innovative project which is doing a great deal of work supporting ex-service personnel across the whole city. The new funding from the FlightPath Fund will be used to help more former service men and women through the programme, giving them new skills and the confidence they need to go into full time employment. I’m sure the funding will be warmly welcomed by the volunteers and participants alike.”
