We have some very exciting news to share with you all…. Baillie Gifford, who are an independent investment business based in Edinburgh have been incredibly generous and donated to the club. Their funding will support our club coordinator to continue in their role, which is vital for the growth and day to day running of the club. This ultimately allows us to change even more lives through sport! As you can probably all guess we are over the moon, here is what our chairperson Elizabeth Ferris had to say about the donation ….
“We were absolutely bowled over with the news of Baillie Gifford’s generous donation to the club.
It honestly took me a little while to digest it when I first heard – what a fantastic gift!
Every penny of this money will go to ensuring we can continue to provide active wheelchair sport for all; and specifically in this “new normal” we all find ourselves in just now – having such support means more to the club than words can say”
