The Paisley Pirates are an Ice Hockey team based in Braehead Arena.  We play in the Scottish National League with most of our players from the local area, who learned how to skate and play in our local ice rinks.  It is a fun, fast paced sport played in a modern arena.   Off ice at every game there are fun competitions to take part in and you can always pick up a souvenir or a snack from merchandise and tuck  tables.  It is a low cost enjoyable family night out.

Renfrewshire Carers Centre - Young Carers Boys Group. - £1886

Renfrewshire Carers Centre, Young Carers Project, wish to provide a "boys group" to male and non binary Young Carers between 8-18 years in Renfrewshire. Male carers may find it more difficult to ask for help and to balance education, work and caring, particularly if they are the main carer. This group will offer a safe and nurturing place where only male young carers can get a break from caring, be a child first, reduce isolation, reduce the stigma of caring & recognise particular needs of male carers through fun, engaging group activities. We hope  improve the mental health and well-being of our male young carers in Renfrewshire. Male young carers give so much time and attention to their loved ones who have an illness, disability, drugs or alcohol misuse or poor mental health. I would like you to recognise and reward their heroic contribution Young carers make in our community!

Renfrew High Sports Leaders - Renfrew High Sports Leaders. - £2000

We will create a group of 50 new S4-S6 Sports Leaders in Renfrew High School. The pupils will complete a formally recognised qualification and will lead sport and physical activity sessions in RHS, associated primary schools and the wider community.

As young leaders, they will play a big part in re-building the community after Covid and positively influence others through volunteering and providing activity sessions for all age groups, now and in future years.

Renfrew Rocks - Youth Development In Basketball. - £2000 

Our project is to focus on coaching basketball amongst the local youth players at all ages brackets. By giving them a pathway to competitive sport, this will promote both physical and mental well being along with giving a sense of purpose and raising self esteem. By having more participation this can aid their own personal development as they continue in life and being involved in team structures from an early age can give valuable life skills.

Renfrew YMCA SCIO - #IAMWHOLE. -  £1800
