MSP Asks Parliament to Support WTTR3

July 23, 2015


DUMBARTON MSP Jackie Baillie, who is also a member of the Sonstrust has posted a motion to the Scottish Parliament in support of our up and coming Walk to the Rock.

In a letter to trust Chair Brian Payne, Jackie sent us the wording of the motion.

“Walk the Rock for Dumbarton Football Club’s Youth Academy”

“That the Parliament welcomes the third Walk to the Rock, which will take place on 5 September 2015 to raise vital funds for Dumbarton Football Club’s Youth Academy; understands that this event is being organised by the Sons Supporters Trust; notes that many trust members have already taken part in similar Walks to the Rock, in 2004 and 2009; understands that all proceeds will go to the Sons’ Youth Development Initiative, which supports four youth teams and is managed by Richie Salveta and a team of dedicated staff; believes that the commitment to football development at Dumbarton FC is paramount to the club’s future existence, and encourages everyone to participate in the Walk to the Rock and to donate as much as possible for what it considers an excellent cause.”

And already it has a full team of support, with the following MSPs endorsing it : Nanette Milne, Liz Smith, Kevin Stewart, Richard Lyle, Anne McTaggart, Hanzala Malik, Elaine Murray, Gil Paterson, Stuart McMillan, Colin Beattie, Adam Ingram
