Covid 19 has been hard on us all, but none more than some of the elderly and vulnerable people in our community. Myself and my good friend M.J. Martin got together with our local Morrisons in Bishopbriggs to get food out to those who needed it most. Read the full story below.


Frank Goes Back to School - Employability Event in Glasgow

Posted on February 19, 2019 at 3:05 PM

Award-winning GLASGOW film-maker FRANK McGOWAN is set to return to his old high-school for an event to help inspire future creatives.

Delivered in partnership with Founders 4 Schools, the employability and entrepreneurship event this week will see students aged 16 – 18 matched with local business owners for a series of motivational talks, mock interviews and mentoring.

McGowan, who found success in television since leaving St Roch's Secondary School in North Glasgow 1994 and founded his own award-winning film company Bad Pony Media, has joined the programme and is enthusiastic about its impact to the next generation of business leaders.

He said: "It’s important for us to help connect the dots for students interested in a creative career, or any career in fact – as we each have a responsibility as entrepreneurs to give back and help guide new talent to resources and information that could well help shape their future.”

McGowan added: “It was strange walking through the doors after some 20 something years. It felt like I'd never actually left!"

Gillian Ferguson, Employability Coordinator for St Roch’s Secondary School in Glasgow, said: “It’s amazing to have entrepreneurs like Frank come in and answer questions for students and help them on their road to employability and choosing their career.”
