Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Movem­ber is now un­der­way, and news of the Re­former staff’s quest to raise money in mem­ory of their late pho­tog­ra­pher, Brian Logue, has even reached the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment.

Ruther­glen MSP, James Kelly this week lodged a mo­tion con­grat­u­lat­ing our boys, as well as Brian’s son, Chris, for tak­ing part in the an­nual chal­lenge.

The mo­tion - which only went live on Tues­day - reads: “That the Par­lia­ment con­grat­u­lates Dou­glas Dickie, Jonathan Geddes, Kenny Smith and Will Hen­shaw of the Ruther­glen Re­former who are tak­ing the so-called Movem­ber chal­lenge in mem­ory of their late col­league, Brian Logue; un­der­stands that, along with Brian’s son, Chris, the team are rais­ing vi­tal funds that will help tackle prostate can­cer; notes that Movem­ber aims to pro­mote in­creased aware­ness of men’s health, specif­i­cally prostate can­cer, tes­tic­u­lar can­cer and men­tal health, and wishes the Ruther­glen Re­former team, and fundrais­ers across Scot­land, great suc­cess with their ef­forts.”

James said he was de­lighted to back our fundrais­ing ef­forts: “I have lodged a mo­tion in the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment not only to recog­nise the fundrais­ing ef­forts of the staff of the Re­former but also in mem­ory of the late Brain Logue, a pho­tog­ra­pher I got to know well as my time as MSP for Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang.

“Brian was a much loved and re­spected fig­ure in the com­mu­nity and I wish the Re­former staff the very best in their fundrais­ing and mous­tache grow­ing ef­forts.”

Do­na­tions have al­ready started com­ing in to our Movem­ber site.

Our first do­na­tion came from Ruther­glen company, PTS Clean, who said on our Face­book page: “We are de­lighted to con­trib­ute a lit­tle some­thing to get it started and hope­fully you will go on to raise lots more for a great cause. Well done guys!”

After just four days, the Re­former staff’s fa­cial hair doesn’t seem likely to ri­val Fred­die Mer­cury any time soon, but they’re get­ting there.

How­ever, Brian’s son, Chris, is al­ready sport­ing a well- trimmed lit­tle num­ber.
