The Mark Scott Foundation was formed in 1996 in memory of Mark Scott, the 16 year old Glasgow schoolboy who was murdered in 1995 in an unprovoked sectarian attack. Since its inception the Foundation has made over 400 awards to individual young people living in or closely connected with Scotland. Barcapel awarded a grant of £33,000.00 for continued funding of the Mark Scott Leadership for Life Award. Visit Their Website
