Raith Trust Praised in ParliamentPrint This Post

A recent members’ debate in the Scottish Parliament has praised the work of the Raith Trust and the other supporters’ trusts across Scotland.

The debate, held on Wednesday 20 February, discussed the motion from local MSP, Marilyn Livingstone:

That the Parliament welcomes the work of Supporters Direct in Scotland; recognises its contribution to Scottish football and believes that supporters’ trusts provide the best mechanism for involving communities in their football clubs and that the Raith Trust in the Kirkcaldy parliamentary constituency is an excellent example of where supporters’ trusts promote community empowerment and strengthen local football teams, and believes that they should continue to be supported.

The motion received cross-party support and speakers of the four main parties in the Parliament took the opportunity to praise the hard work of supporters right across Scotland.
