LATEST NEWS

As you will now be aware ,our Foundation is getting better known and our name is reaching further and further afield .

The Board made a decision that we should try and have an Ambassador ,who could promote our name ,have a business mind to keep us on the right track as we expand and of course someone who has the same ambition and drive for our Foundation to help us take it forward in the future.

After a few meeting and conversation we are absolutely delighted to introduce to you all ...WALK WITH SCOTT FOUNDATION,first ever AMBASSADOR....

Mr Blair

Blair Stewart is 46 and lives in Musselburgh with his wife and three kids. Blair is a past Board member of Musselburgh Rugby Club, Musselburgh Riding of the Marches 2016, and is Managing Director for Bank of America.

Welcome aboard Blair from ALL SCOTTERS

This is Blair’s statement

I consider myself very fortunate in both my professional and family life, but I recognise that not everyone is, and how quickly circumstances can change. Scott Glynn has been a friend of mine for years and I have watched the achievements of the WWSF with pleasure and admiration, supporting fundraising events whenever I can.

I am proud to be part of a fantastic local community in East Lothian and it is WWSF's focus on that community that makes it such a special organisation. Helping local charities, doing simple things for ordinary folks, helping our own friends and families in our own community - it's the simple things that matter, and it's the small things that make a difference. I'm delighted and very proud to be an ambassador for WWSF and I look forward to doing what I can to help ensure its continued success. One thing is for sure, it will be a lot of fun.

WALK WITH SCOTT FOUNDATION HELPS 

CYCLING WITHOUT AGE--MUSSELBURGH

JAN/FEB, 2018

On the 29th of January ,after following the wonderful fundraising of CWA MUSSELBURGH..We decided to give them an incentive and a boost ,by telling them that if they reached half the cost ..we will match it ...and well done to the people of Musselburgh ,who overnight broke the halfway total 

So then it was up to us to fulfil our promise 

And on Friday the 2nd of February

We were delighted to have presented Cycling Without Age - Musselburgh (@CWAmusselburgh) with a cheque from the Walk With Scott Foundation for £3,500 to help pay for a 'Trishaw'. (A cross between a rickshaw and trike) which allows anyone who can cycle, to take those less able out on a bike-ride. 😊 Their motto 'The right to wind in your hair'...

We're absolutely thrilled to be able to support this cause. One with very similar values as ours ❤️.

Well done to Ewan Dawson, Lydia and team for creating this wonderful dream, and to your Patron James Martin - aka Eric from Still Game... 

Well done Scotter family. Be very proud guys x

WELL DONE ALL

Douglas had an idea, based on what a great entertainer Scott is, and with the addition of Joe Camay and John Gahagan to create an evening of comedy in aid of the Walk for Scott Foundation and so the date was set for Thursday 22nd February 2018 in Glasgow.

There are a limited number of tables of 10 are remaining at only £550 (£55 per head) which includes your three course meal and an unforgettable evening of quality comedy entertainment. All three speakers are hilarious if somewhat close to the bone from time to time ;)
