3rd Charity Partner for 2019/20 – White Ribbon Scotland

Shire this year will carry a 3rd Charity partner logo on their kits. On our home shorts we will carry White Ribbon Scotland.

White Ribbon Scotland believes;

Most men do not commit violence against women. But all men have a role in ending it. If we all start by making a pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about men’s violence against women in all its forms, that will make a huge difference.

Our Shire Kitman is vice chairperson of this charity.

With one more sponsor to announce later today Sunday will see the 2019/20 new kits launched.
