“The support and assistance shown by the Foundation to both myself and my family following my serious injury was invaluable and overwhelming. I would like to express my sincere thanks to the Foundation and Scottish Rugby who assisted in my recovery.”
Tonci Buzov, Hillhead/Jordanhill
“The car is ‘Superb’ as built by Skoda and funded by MIPF to which I am eternally grateful for financing to allow increased independence. It has all the facilities I need with hand control adaptions with plenty of space to carry my wheelchair and passengers and to allow me an active lifestyle which includes event attendance, hospital visits and my day job with Glasgow Warriors.”
“Nowadays, people understand that dealing with disability is an expensive business. Government agencies and local authorities do offer support but, with the best will in the world, there are many vital elements of care and equipment that are not covered which is where the MIPF steps in to support injured players like myself.”
Ian Rankin, MIPF's chairman, is taking part in not one, but two fundraising events shortly.
He'll be cycling the Etape Loch Ness (66 miles) on 23rd April 2017 and the Caledonia Etape (81 miles) on 21st May 2017 to raise money for the Murrayfield Injured Players Foundation.
Please support Ian's effort at Just Giving.
