Bernard presented the club with the defibrillator yesterday and we are delighted to be involved in his campaign. Thank you to Stephen's Foundation for donating it through one of his donors. It was a good day at the club and it was very good of the Gallacher family to turn up to support the event. There is a nice piece about it in today's Scotsman newspaper. some photo's are available to view on Facebook. Good luck to Bernard and the Junior Section on Friday night at the SGU awards in Glasgow.
