Dedication!

Clyde supporters are continuing to raise funds for the Back the Bully Wee campaign in a variety of ways. Today was Unity Day at Broadwood and it saw the occurrence of many activities.

One of the biggest events of the day was the sponsored walk. 21 people took part in the 12-mile trek from Shawfield to Broadwood and they raised a fantastic estimated total of over £3000.

The group included two Partick Thistle fans, who felt that they wanted to help the cause and their contribution was much appreciated by the Bully Wee fans.

The walkers would like to publicly thank Coral Bookmakers (Hogganfield Loch) and Brewers Fayre (Cumbernauld Road, Stepps) for kindly letting them use their facilities along the way.

Chik Duncan's Smelly Wellie Tele Show at Cumbernauld Theatre was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone in attendance. As well as a contribution to the fund, it also raised cash for the Scottish Spina Bifida Association. A live performance by John Alexander & Co also went down well during the show and they continue to sell their CD single at a fast rate.

At Broadwood, there was a fantastic response to the Unity Day message and all the donations and bucket collections are currently being counted, with the weekly total update to follow on the website tomorrow.

Thanks go to all of the above for their efforts and generosity, as well as the willing volunteers who did a tremendous job collecting car parking money before the big match kicked-off.

Lastly, a separate mention to one fan who contacted the Supporters' Trust to explain his approach to helping out.

Paul Shanks from Cumbernauld is willing to go through the pain barrier for the club and is having both his legs waxed tomorrow after his daughter's christening. Not only that, but for the occasion he and his wife have asked for donations to the fund instead of presents.

Paul says he would love his daughter to fall in love with Clyde and there's no better time to get started!
