MOTHERWELL & WISHAW MSP MEETS ANTI-BULLYING CAMPAIGN GROUP AT WISHAW GENERAL HOSPITAL

SNP MSP Clare Adamson met with Bikes Against Bullies at Wishaw General hospital this week.

The bikers stopped off at Wishaw General on Day 5 of their ‘Grand Tour’ challenge – a journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats on two 50cc scooters. The trip is intended to raise funds for the group, who provide anti-bullying workshops in schools and support for families who suffer bullying, free of charge across the UK.

The bikers invited Clare along as they presented a thank-you certificate and cakes to staff at Ward 16 of Wishaw Hospital, who recently treated Grand Tour participant Adrian Rigden after a bout of ill-health. Also supporting the group were Cllr Tommy Cochrane (SNP) and Cllr Martin McCulloch (Labour).

The Grand Tour is being supported by Motorcycle manufacturer Lexmoto, who loaned Bikes Against Bullies the scooters for the tour.

Commenting, Clare Adamson said:

 “I was pleased to be invited along to meet Bikes Against Bullies this morning, as they said thanks to the wonderful staff at Wishaw General”.  

“The group offer free workshops to schools and free support to families across the UK”.

“This is a fantastic project and I wish the Bikers well as they progress towards John O’Groats”.

ENDS
