Massive thanks to Marie Murphy, Lecturer at Glasgow Clyde College – Cardonald Campus for inviting Tommy to speak to Health and Social Care Students in his home town.
This was quite an emotional visit as Tommy grew up across the road from the College and one of the Students worked beside Tommy’s mum Joan back in 2004.
We are proud to be returning to the College in early December to launch a permanent pledge wall and to add to the inspiring pledges below made today.
