That this House commends Whitehill Welfare Football Club for providing 250 free season tickets to local school children; notes that the Rosewell-based club offered all pupils at Rosewell Primary School and St Matthews Primary School their very own Under 16’s Season Ticket to enjoy games at Ferguson Park; understands that the club wanted to encourage the children back into outdoor activities by opening up opportunities to visit Ferguson Park to those who might have otherwise been unable to afford it; and highlights the significant mental and physical health benefits of sport during the covid-19 pandemic.
