A four-year-old from South Queensferry who sadly lost his father 12 months ago will lead the Hibernian football team onto the pitch for their semi-final match at Tynecastle on Saturday.
Rory will be one of the team’s mascots for the big game thanks to Home-Start, a family support charity, and will enjoy his once in a lifetime opportunity to be centre stage for the Scottish League Cup semi-final.
The family became involved with the charity after Rory’s father, Richard, died from injuries suffered in a car crash.
Home-Start volunteer Gordon has visited the family home on a regular basis and has provided a positive male role model for Rory and his brother Thomas.
Shelagh Young, Director of Scotland, Home-Start UK said: “Home-Start volunteers are changing the lives of families across Scotland.”
