A firm with a Bo’ness man at its helm has pledged its support for a Commonwealth Games athlete.

And NorDan UK Ltd’s 
managing director, Alex Brown, has also organised his own fundraiser to help support athletes to achieve their potential.

The company, which has its head office in Stirling, is supporting para-athlete Meggan Dawson-Farrell at Glasgow 2014.

Meggan holds every Scottish record for a female T54 wheelchair racer from the 100 metres to the Marathon.

The 21-year old is ranked eighth in Europe and 12th in the World.

Boss Alex is a former Bo’ness Academy pupil and his team in the Stirling office includes his old classmates William Murra, Davie Smith and Peter O’Neil.

Alex’s charity, The Blue Eyes foundation, which gives money to help young people in sport, recently held a sportsman’s dinner at Bo’ness Town Hall raising £6000.

Sportsmen Jim Leishman MBE, Stewart Smith and Bert Allan were guest speakers.

Alex said: “I firmly believe there is a direct link between sport and the motivation for young people to succeed in life.

“The aim of the Foundation is to inspire, include and encourage young people to participate in sport, enabling them to focus, and gain a passion for success.”

NorDan has also delivered all the windows and doors into the Athlete’s Village in Glasgow which will be turned into affordable housing after this summer’s event.
