Scott: I’ll wear hoops to help the foodbank
A Rangers-daft Cambuslang man is prepared to don green and white hoops to help those living in poverty.
Scott McLeod, 30, will tackle the 23-mile Kiltwalk from Glasgow Green to Balloch on Sunday, April 30, to raise funds for Rutherglen and Cambuslang Foodbank.
And to entice people to donate he has offered to wear a Celtic top on the journey if he raises over £200.
Just 24 hours before he takes part he will be in his usual seat at Ibrox, cheering on his heroes in the final Old Firm match of the season.
But the former West Coats Primary and Cathkin High pupil is more than willing to swap blue for green the next day.
“I actually woke up with man flu and just decided to do it,” he said. “I must have been delusional.
“It’s something I have always wanted to do. I missed it last year.
“Two of my friends are Celtic fans and both said if I wear the top they will donate £50 each.
“It will be worth it to raise money for the foodbank.”
Insurance salesman Scott, who lives on the site of the old Cathkin High, is no stranger to taking on challenges.
He previously hiked the West Highland Way in under four days for a cancer charity.
But this time he is eager to help people closer at home.
“I am from Cambuslang and have lived here all my life,” he said.
“Foodbanks are something that should not happen in this day and age and it’s something I have always felt passionate about.”
