The Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust (GVVT) is delighted to announce that it has completed the purchase of Bridgeton Bus Garage from City Property Glasgow (Investments) LLP, an arms-length organisation of Glasgow City Council.
This marks a major landmark for the Trust and provides a sound basis for its long-term future. Ownership of the garage gives GVVT the best opportunity to fulfil its aims and objectives, to keep the vehicles together as a ‘collection’ and ensure the greatest security for vehicle owners. Ownership will also present more opportunities to attract grants or loans for continuing development of the Trust’s activities, in particular the ‘Back on the Road’ social inclusion programme.
The Trust is very grateful to the help and support of City Property and our principal funder RBS Social & Community Capital. We also very much appreciated the range of private individuals who have contributed to make this possible.
