Tru Wealth Sponsorship

It’s with great pleasure that we can announce a new club athlete sponsor.  Mhairi Hendry and Philippa Millage have recently received individual sponsorship from Tru Wealth, part of The McKnight Financial Group – itself a main and longstanding sponsor of the club.  This sees the continued development of the Tru Wealth brand alongside Scottish Athletics.

Jonathan Robinson of Tru Wealth said “We are excited to support two incredible athletes who have fantastic prospects for 2019 and beyond.”  Many of you may have met with the Tru Wealth team at Grangemouth last summer and this year at various events at the Emirates Arena, and as part of their support of athletics the group have created an exclusive member offers page for the club.  These offers are available to all VP-Glasgow members who access Financial Planning from Tru Wealth. 

Tru Wealth and The McKnight Financial Group look forward to supporting VP-Glasgow for some time to come!
