The Time Capsule Ice Rink – National Lottery Award


Nominated in the FINAL of the National Lottery Awards in the Best Sports Project Category.

As well as this, following it’s reopening in November 2012 after it received £300,000 in lottery funding, the ice rink has implemented the UK’s first Inclusive Skating Session, a session designed for children with disabilities and their families to come along to the rink to participate in Ice Sports. It takes place every Sunday on a permanent basis, 6pm until 730pm. The cost is £6 for the ENTIRE family.

Inclusive Skating Session

This session is coached by fully qualified coaches, and volunteers who are ice skaters themselves. It has been running now for 7 weeks, and now boasts 32 members, which is increasing every week as the word begins to spread.

It has having a massively positive impact on the community in North Lanarkshire, and the Greater Glasgow community. As there is no ice rink within the Glasgow City limits, this ice session is catering to the full Greater Glasgow catchment area, and beyond already.

The session is proving to be unique within the area, as it is a session that can be enjoyed by the entire family, inclusive of able bodied siblings of children with disabilities who are joining in in the ice activities, and improving their skills and fitness.

The Awards are an annual search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects, and they recognise and celebrate the difference that Lottery-funded projects make to communities across the UK.

The National Lottery Awards have seven categories – each reflecting an area of Lottery funding: Sport; Heritage; Arts; Environment; Health; Education; and Voluntary/Charity. The Time Capsule Ice is one of only seven projects to make it through to the finals in the Best Sports Project category. The winning nominee in each category will also receive £2000 towards their project. We anticipate using the majority of this to help promote the Inclusive Skating Project.

The high profile nature of this award is a wonderful way to further promote this Inclusive Skating Session on a UK Level, and, all of the ice activities available at this facility. Should we win, the awards come together in a Star Studded BBC One Show, watched by millions, with a feature film on the project being showed ahead of the award being presented.

We have already received backing from Carol Smillie, Tony Watt(celtic), Edward Reid(Britians Got Talent), Jenna McCorkell(Olympic Figure Skater), Karly Robertson(Scottish Champion Figure Skater), and the skating community across the entire UK and abroad. our YouTube Channel – has been viewed over 1500 times, and has been seen in 35 countries on 6 continents.

Voting for the finals started at 9am on Wednesday 19 June and ends at midnight on Wednesday 24 July.
