Robbie Warner's continued support for people with muscle disease is recognised in the Scottish Parliament

Leading campaigner from Dumbarton, Robbie Warner, has been praised for all his support for families living with muscle disease across Scotland.

MP for Dumbarton and Cross Party Group on Muscular Dystrophy Chair, Jackie Baillie, tabled a motion in the Scottish Parliament congratulating Robbie:

“That the Parliament congratulates Robbie Warner on being recognised as a top volunteer for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign; notes that the Dumbarton man landed this accolade earlier this month as part of Volunteers’ Week; understands that he has been involved with the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign since his son was diagnosed with the disease 14 years ago; notes that Mr Warner is now a trustee of the charity and is currently serving as the chair of the Scottish Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, and commends the hard work of Mr Warner and his family, who have raised thousands of pounds for the charity through a series of events that include quiz nights and charity abseils.”

We are delighted that Robbie’s long-standing support for people with muscle disease and the charity has been deservedly recognised by MSPs – read the motion (S4M-00283 Jackie Baillie: Top Muscular Dystrophy Campaigner) on the Scottish Parliament website.
