Another Eastwood pupil joins the relay party

Eastwood High will be cheering on not two but three batonbearers at the Queen’s Relay this summer.

The event, which marks the arrival of the Commonwealth Games, comes to East Ren on July 16 — and Euan Ford will be leading the charge.

Euan (12) was chosen for his work on diabetes, having lived with the condition himself since he was six — however, the Newton Mearns lad wasn’t aware that he’d been chosen, due to a fault which left hundreds of runners without a congratulations email.

Euan joins Eastwood girls Diane Barbour (17) and Erin Wallace (13) in carrying the baton.
