Motion text

That this House commends the outstanding charitable contribution donated at short notice by fans of Paisley football team, St Mirren football club for raising 2,000 Euros for small Catalan football team CD Borgonya after the latter's playing grounds were damaged by flooding; thanks St Mirren fan Kenny Steele for organising the fundraising; recognises the deep historical ties between Paisley and Borgonya that were founded upon the shared connection to Coats, famous manufacturers of textiles; agrees that Paisley should be celebrated for the disproportionate contribution it has made to the world; and encourages community leaders in Paisley and Catalonia to continue to develop these links.
