Local Constituency MSP, Fiona Hyslop met with Scottish Sports Alliance to discuss why sport matters with the Government Minister for Sport and Mental Health and to add their #ISupportSport Selfie to their campaign.
“I am very pleased to support the Scottish Sports Alliance and the work they do to promote health, mental health, education and social issues. The energy you get from sport and fitness is fundamental to our physical and mental wellbeing and something that should be embraced and promoted across our communities.”
Kim Atkinson, CEO of the Scottish Sports Association, said
“We need to embrace the many benefits of participating in sport – from sheer enjoyment to positive contributions to health, mental health, education and economic productivity as highlighted by #whysportmatters. Our members provide opportunities for people of all ages to get active and we would encourage everyone to find their sport(s) and to join us in saying #isupportsport.”
