I'm delighted to announce shirt sponsorship for my boyhood (and mostly adulthood) rugby club, Ross High RFC. in Tranent, East Lothian
Ross High are not only a great local club and the sort that I am looking to be involved with, but on a personal level, it is a club which has given me so much.
Being the President of the club starting back in 2005 made me one of the youngest presidents of an established rugby club in the history of Scottish rugby. The club were at quite a low ebb at the time which made the leadership role quite daunting and I feel the experiences I went through at the time, with the mentoring of Alex Muirhead, gave me a great insight into business.
That coupled with playing for the club for 18 of my 22 year playing career taught me all about teamwork, leadership, decision making - and the preparation it takes to succeed. Ultimately, its those skills that have prepared me to be to be a senior manager in my day job and also set up my own business in photography.
That's just a flavor of what the club, and sport of rugby, has done for me and why I am so pleased to be able to give just a little something back.
