With up to 4,000 batonbearers joining the relay in more than 400 communities, this is Scotland’s biggest ever relay. The Queen’s Baton is visiting all 32 Local Authorities, with up to 100 batonbearers carrying Her Majesty’s message daily.
Community batonbearers have been selected by independent panels, who have considered people’s achievements against the odds, their mentoring of young people, contributions to community and youth sport, and those who make a difference through volunteering and community support.
Boston Networks would like to congratulate Jack McGinley and Kirsty Anderson who have been selected to carry the baton in East Renfrewshire and wish them luck on their journey today.
The relay will reflect the important role of sport by visiting schools, sporting facilities and leisure centres, encouraging communities to get behind Team Scotland, get involved with the Games and use its profile to get more people participating in sport.
