Spòrs Gàidhlig exisits to provide opportunities for young people to use Gaelic through safe, fun and adventurous activities. These can be stand alone, or linked to the Curriculum and school-based learning. They cater for Gaelic speakers, Gaelic learners and those new to the language.

Move the Nuclear Weapons Money – The Global Campaign

Count the Nuclear Weapons Money action was part of a global campaign Move the Nuclear Weapons Money.

NuclearMoneyVanda Proskova and Bill Kidd prepare the nuclear weapons money for counting

‘The campaign is aimed at curtailing a dangerous nuclear arms race by cutting off the budgets and investments that fund the weapons, and to use these funds to instead address and resolve climate change, poverty, international conflicts and inequality,’ said Alyn Ware, co-founder of the campaign and one of the core members of Count the Nuclear Weapons Money.

‘The nuclear weapons industry makes billions of dollars and uses their wealth and power to promote the nuclear arms race and increased spending on nuclear weapons. But we can take back this power through divestment and legislative action.’(See New Anti-Nuclear Campaign to Stop Funding of Nuclear Weapons, Associated Press).

‘The campaign is making progress on divestment action, and is getting support from all types of people, young and old, from all sorts of backgrounds and from nuclear-armed and non-nuclear countries,’ said Vanda Proskova, Vice-Chair of PragueVision Institute for Sustainable Security, curator of the Move the Nuclear Weapons Money memes exhibition and one of the core members of Count the Nuclear Weapons Money.

‘Counting the nuclear weapons money this past week puts (non-fossil) fuel into the campaign by demonstrating the staggering amounts of money currently going into nuclear weapons and the amount of good this money could make for ensuring a peaceful and sustainable planet if it was re-directed.’

Join the Stem Cell Register to Become a Potential Lifesaver


Bill with the Anthony Nolan Trust and SFRS team. 

"I was delighted to host the Anthony Nolan Trust and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service this September, in the Scottish Parliament to mark Blood Cancer Awareness Month.

We celebrated the 1026 potential lifesavers in Glasgow Anniesland, who are signed up to the lifesaving register.

I encourage more people from Glasgow Anniesland, particularly men aged 16-30 and people from black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds, to register as stem cell donors and make sure that a match is available for everyone in need of a transplant. While anyone on the register could be a match for someone with blood cancer, men aged 16-30 are most likely to be asked to donate. They provide more than 50% of donations yet make up just 18% of the register."

Find out more about how to join the register, and how to potentially save a life here: https://www.anthonynolan.org/…/donate…/who-can-join-register.
