A&M Scotland provide facilities for boys and girls in some of the most deprived areas in Scotland. They offer football coaching, dancing classes and life skills at no cost to the young people who participate.
Part of the charity’s work involves the organisation of holiday camps and these run for three weeks of the school summer break. Every day hundreds of boys and girls visit the camps to play sports, make friendships and have fun. They are also fed every day, which can provide a lifeline for some parents who find it difficult to feed their children during the school summer holidays.
The charity was co-founded by ex-professional footballer, Andy McLaren, who played for Dundee United, Kilmarnock and Partick Thistle.
Visiting the camp was our Managing Director, Steve Graham and our Finance Director, Kenny Barclay, who presented the cheque to Andy McLaren and Paul Fletcher from A&M.
