It was announced recently that the new Queensferry Crossing, spanning the River Forth between Rosyth and Queensferry at the end of August.
Transport Scotland are giving 50,000 people the chance to take part in the Queensferry Crossing Experience by walking across the new bridge on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd September.
As a tribute to Margaret Ross, the Pars Supporters Trust thought it would be fantastic to have as many Pars fans walk the bridge at that time, and either be sponsored or make a donation of at least £10.
All proceeds will go to the Margaret Ross Memorial Fund, a fund to support young footballers at the Club. Groups of fans walking in football strips and carrying flags will make a fabulous spectacle.
Queensferry took its name from St Margaret, who is said to have established the original ferry crossing for pilgrims. Margaret Ross, Chair of the PST and latterly DAFC Director walked the Forth Road Bridge with many fellow fans during the “Save the Pars” campaign.
She sadly passed away in 2016 and we now have an opportunity to repeat her journey on the new Bridge as a tribute to her and her hard work. It will also be a great social outing and an opportunity to raise funds for young footballers at the Club, a cause close to her heart.
Although not everyone will succeed in securing a place in the ballot, we hope hundreds of fans will cross the new Bridge in black and white, and raise money for a lasting legacy. Even if you cannot make the walk or fail in the ballot, a donation or sponsoring another walker at this time would be a fantastic gesture.
