Dandara supports long running Loanhead Gala Day

Loanhead Gala Day is welcoming a donation from our East Scotland team, the region behind the new homes at Ashgrove on St Margaret’s Avenue. The donation will be used to help ensure the whole community can come together in August to celebrate Loanhead’s prestigious Gala Day.

Established in 1903, the Loanhead Gala Day has faced some challenges this year following the economic uncertainties presented by the Covid pandemic. Despite restrictions, committed Gala volunteers are determined for the event to go ahead, and have planned the event with extra safety measures and precautions in line with government guidelines. The Gala includes a week of fun activities for all the family, with a grand concluding day at the end of the week that sees a local school pupil being crowned Queen.

Dandara East Scotland is pleased to able to provide support to ensure that Loanhead Gala Day continues as an integral community event. Their involvement in the community has been active thanks to the Ashgrove development.

Lisa Archibald, Head of Sales at our East Scotland region, commented: 

As we have new family homes at Ashgrove, we decided that a contribution to Loanhead Gala would help to ensure that the community can still come together to celebrate after what has been a difficult year. We hope everyone enjoys this year’s Gala!

Ross Perfect, Chairman of the Loanhead Gala Day committee, said:

Dandara’s generous contribution is particularly welcome this year when Covid restrictions mean we are unable to organise many of our normal fundraising activities.
