reflexblue-Wheelchair Challenge

reflexblue was delighted to be a part of the third 12 km wheelchair challenge and be able to support disability clubs in this exhilarating and cheerful occasion.

The event took place on a beautiful sunny day on Saturday 20th June 2015. Around 70 people, young and old, from four local volunteer clubs including Dunbartonshire Disability Sport Club, Riverside Football Club, Sporting Judo Club ALBA & Dumbarton District Disabled Children’s Forum who organises activities for people with disabilities were set off to a 12km wheelchair relay from Dumbarton East Station to Clydebank Shopping Centre.

After three and a half hours of sweat, sometimes tears, one or two blisters and lots of laughs the participants were welcomed in Clydebank Shopping Centre by a crowd of supporters. The reflexblue – Wheelchair Challenge managed to raise £1000 for the three clubs. All clubs expressed great gratitude for reflexblue support for the organising committee, expertise given and donation of the T-shirts.

The plans for next year’s reflexblue – Wheelchair Challenge have already started. The interest towards this event has been growing and bringing wider number of participants as well as bigger crowds of supporters every year, reflexblue is looking forward to the future events.

Ricki helps out Ranger's fan John Connelly for his 100th birthday

Rangers super fan John Connelly is celebrating turning 100 this year and as he's been going to Ibrox for 87 years, Rangers First and the new Rangers board thought it was appropriate to celebrate in style.

John's daughter, Carolyn, had approached the previous Rangers board about John's birthday but was turned away. However when she got in touch with Rangers First they succesfully worked with the new board to organise some appropriate birthday presents.

John was presented a specifically designed book by Ricki which featured a collection of old images of Rangers and John and a biography of John's life.

John is also now the first ever member to receive the Rangers First Honorary certificate as well as a free season ticket from Rangers and a seat in the directors box for the first game of the season.

We hope John enjoys this very special birthday year and the next season.

Not only that Ricki was in the Daily Mail for a funnier reason. He's got another doppelganger it seems... new Rangers manager Mark Warburton!
