MSP congratulates recipient of Glasgow Lewis and Harris Association Trophy

Western Isles MSP, Alasdair Allan, has congratulated Iain MacRitchie, the founder of the MCR Pathways Project, on being awarded the Glasgow Lewis and Harris Association Trophy.

A Trophy is awarded each year to the person with Lewis or Harris connections who have brought honour to themselves or to the islands during the past year.

Alasdair Allan commented: “Iain is a worthy recipient of this award. The innovative project he has pioneered for young people is targeted particularly for those who are disadvantaged, and uses a team of mentors to give experienced advice which allows people to find new careers and opportunities.

“Iain, whose father was from Barvas and whose mother was from Point, has clearly used his own talents and abilities to help others find their way in life.

“Recognition in this way by the Glasgow Lewis and Harris Association is well-deserved, and I would congratulate him on this achievement.”
