Community art project set to bring Hope to Hamilton

Avanti West Coast announced that it has awarded a charity £40,000 in funding to deliver a unique art project at Hamilton Central station.


Titled ‘Hope in Hamilton’, the project centres on creating a piece of interactive art at the station with the input of local people in south Lanarkshire who are being supported with their mental wellbeing.


The idea builds upon on the work of Rail 74 Community Rail Partnership (CRP) - a charity that aims to deliver community benefits along the Rutherglen to Hamilton Central line through innovative projects – to improve mental health.


Avanti West Coast are supporting the initiative through their Community Rail Project Fund and are partnering with fellow train operators ScotRail and CrossCountry to help deliver Hope in Hamilton.
