Dundee Museum of Transport registered with RBS CommunityForce, an initiative which sees them working with local communities to support the people, projects and charities making a real difference where you live.
Voting was open for four weeks from 26 September 2011 and in the Dundee area we received 765 votes making us the regional winner.
Our grant of £6000 will be used for our feasibility study, equipment for a mobile exhibition stand for educational purposes and the production of brochures and stationery to help us actively seek volunteers and raise awareness of the project.
None of this would have been possible without the help and support of everyone who got involved in our campaign, including The Rotary Club of Abertay, Dundee Civic Trust, Dundee Historic Environment Trust, The McManus Art Gallery and Museum, Dundee Central Library, Taybus Vintage Vehicle Society, Dundee Partnership, Maryfield Community Forum, Clark Thomson, Dingbro Auto Parts, Nortruck, Airport Travel Dundee, Autorent Self Drive, Claverhouse Group and Joe FitzPatrick, Shona Robison, Gregor and all at the Dundee SNP office.
Many congratulations also to the two runners up in the region who each also received an RBS CommunityForce grant – Angus Riding for the Disabled (755 votes) and Brae Riding for the Disabled (640 votes).
