Jamie and I have been privileged to watch Jake play with the Caley Thistle academy this year. Not only do they work hard to teach the boys the football skills needed to be part of a competitive team, but they develop team work, social skills, work ethic and discipline. Aside from football, they are equipping them with the skills necessary to help them become responsible, respectful members of society. It is a joy to watch them play and see the hard work and commitment of the players, parents, coaches and all of the people behind the scenes. All of this, of course, can’t be done without funding, donations and the support of the wider community. So, as a small contribution I am climbing Ben Nevis on the 23rd June to raise some much needed funds for the academy. Any support would be greatly appreciated by myself and Jake.
