On Wednesday 26 November, I attended the Scottish KidsOut Question of Sport evening, which is held in Glasgow at The Old Fruit Market.
KidsOut is a children’s charity; founded in 1999, it delivers a range of Children’s Services and is dedicated to bringing fun and happiness to the lives of disadvantaged children. KidsOut provide five main services, including unique sensory learning spaces called Phyzzpods – see video.
For the last few years, my friend Keith Knowles, his wife Franca & I have been going to this event to support, primarily because of our friend, Stephen Glancey who is one of the KidsOut Board of Trustees.
Sadly, Franca passed away recently, shortly after Margot, following an 11 year fight against her brain cancer.
Unbeknown to Keith & I, Stephen announced on Wednesday evening that two of the new Phyzzpods that will be located in London this year, are to be named in honour of both Margot and Franca.
Our heartfelt gratitude and thanks go to Stephen and all at KidsOut for honouring Margot in this way.
Husband to Vicki and father to Oscar (2007), Rufus (2008), Digby (2015), Humphrey (2017) & Margot (2012-2014)
