Many thanks to Australian firm Osprey Global technologies, led by ex pat Airdrieonian David Walker, for their very generous donation to Diamonds in the Community.
David, originally from Whinhall, moved to Australia in 1996 with his family, but has never forgotten his roots. In the last 5 years, David and his company have donated thousands of pounds to charities and causes in his home town, including Maggies, Airdrie Supporters Trust and the Diamond Sensory Room for kids with ASDN, New Beginnings Homeless Organisation, Arrans Garden, and Airdrie Football club (mens and ladies).
David was one of a party from Airdrie who recently went on a charity trek to Mongolia, raising over £20k for various charities including Michelle Henderson Cervical Cancer Trust, aiding Homelessness in the UK and Mongolia, and also introduced walking football to the Asian Country. He will be repeating this feat when he travels to Namibia in August 2021.
David’s donation is hugely appreciated by all of us at DITC, and will go a long way to helping the residents of the town who will benefit from our community projects planned for 2020.
