Tricia Marwick MSP for Mid Fife and Glenrothes has this week pledged her support to a campaign ahead of the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
‘Sport Your Trainers’ is a national campaign, led by the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Organising Committee, which encourages everyone across Scotland to wear their trainers on Commonwealth Day – Monday, 12th March.
The campaign aims to encourage Scots to show their support for the Games, which take place in Glasgow from July 23rd to August 3rd 2014.
Mrs Marwick said: “I am delighted to provide my support to the ‘Sport Your Trainers’ campaign.
“The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games will be a wonderful occasion for the whole country. The world’s sporting spotlight will be on Scotland and I know the Games will be a huge success.
“Initiatives such as ‘Sport Your Trainers’ are a great opportunity for Scots to show their support for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games. I hope as many constituents of mine as possible get involved with this campaign.”
