Local Dance Initiatives Receive Funding Support

The Allied Vehicles Charitable Trust is proud to announce successful funding for two local community dance initiatives, Legacy Dance Company and Partick Dancing Group.

Legacy Dance Company, co-founded by Chloe Elliot and Hannah Johnstone, has been awarded £1,000 towards acquiring essential equipment for their new studio premises. This grant will support the purchase of mirrors and dance flooring, crucial for the proper functioning of their new location.

The company, which provides dance education and a supportive community space for children, including those with autism and ADHD, has operated for two years. They serve the children of Ruchill and Lambhill and now find themselves outgrowing their original premises.

Chloe Elliot expressed her delight at the donation, saying,

"We would like to thank everyone involved at Allied Vehicles for giving us the opportunity to make our dreams come true!"

“The funds awarded will allow us to purchase the proper materials needed to open our very own studio, which will give our students a new and bigger place to call their second home."


We are excited to give back to a community that we have lived in all our lives, and we can’t wait to offer more to the community by having this opportunity."

“We can’t express enough how grateful we are that Allied Vehicles have appreciated the work that we are doing. From everyone involved at Legacy Dance Company, thank you."

Partick Dancing Group, predominantly consisting of senior women, received £300 towards transport costs for an upcoming group trip.

The group is about more than just cutting a rug on the dancefloor. It helps reduce social isolation among its members, many of whom live alone and rely on the group for much-needed social interaction.

Cathie Connelly of Partick Dancing Group thanked the Trust for their help,

"We are delighted to receive this award from Allied Vehicles,” she said, “We will use it to go on a trip in July when our dance sessions are off, which will allow us to keep in touch with each other over the summer break. Thank you so much!"

David Facenna, Corporate Culture Director at Allied Vehicles Group, shared his thoughts on the importance of these groups,

"At Allied Vehicles, we are passionate local community. We are happy to support both Legacy Dance Company and Partick Dancing Group. These groups do fantastic work in promoting activity and reducing isolation across generations. We’re happy we can help them extend their valuable services."
