Playing Their Part
Supporting those most in-need, preparing to return to business and keeping customers safe - find out how the Glasgow Warriors family of Sponsors and Partners have been Playing Their Part in recent weeks.
SP Energy Networks
SP Energy Networks have been supporting their most vulnerable customers over the last four months, as they continue their work in local communities alongside their essential work nationwide.
The Official Community Partners of Glasgow Warriors have recently donated £5,000 to the British Red Cross from their COVID-19 Fund to help those in crisis, as well as supporting Community Energy Fortnight and the #harnessourpower campaign.
We're proud to support @BritishRedCross with £5,000 from our COVID-19 Fund. Our donation will provide services such as food parcels, medicine deliveries, fuel top-ups and welfare check-ins to vulnerable adults and asylum seekers across Glasgow and Midlothian. #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/wZapgMY9ZY

Club sponsor Leidos have been furthering the conversation on mental health in recent weeks, throwing their support behind PTSD Awareness Day on their social media channels and underlining their commitment to tackling mental health challenges across the globe.
Initiatives such as supporting anti-suicide efforts, tackling the impact of COVID-19 on mental health and continuing to support those suffering from PTSD were amongst those underlined as Leidos continues to champion the removal of the stigmas attached to mental health.
We're committed to addressing the broader challenges related to mental health and well-being.
Together we must elevate the conversation for this generation, and generations to come.#PTSDAwarenessDay https://t.co/Kj45875OJr

With flight schedules beginning to take shape following the COVID-19 lockdown, Glasgow Airport has been ensuring safety measures are in place for passengers flying to and from their destinations.
UV handrails and enhanced cleaning procedures are just two of the ways the airport is putting passengers first - for more, see below.
Did you know Glasgow Airport has fitted UV handrail sanitisers that kill 99.99% of germs through UV light? This supplements our enhanced cleaning procedures in response to #COVID19 and is part of the measures we're taking in helping each other to travel safely. #covidsafe pic.twitter.com/xlfwoiLujf

As part of our enhanced cleaning measures, all security trays are scrubbed and coated with an antimicrobial product tested to be more than 99.99% effective against COVID-19 for up to 30 days. One of the many ways we're working hard to help each other travel safely. #GLAready pic.twitter.com/03vULy0ZzI

The Park Practice
Glasgow-based dentists The Park Practice have re-opened their doors in recent weeks, with the club's official partner able to see those with urgent dental emergencies following the easing of the respective COVID-19 restrictions.
The surgery produced a patient information video ahead of re-opening, as well as setting up their 'Patient Journey' hub as they work alongside the latest Scottish Government guidelines.
After 3 long months we can now at least offer some care for Urgent Emergencies! We have meticulously planned for reopening so hopefully you will see our new measures to maintain our standards of dental care. #dentistry #reopening pic.twitter.com/CLomRCfbz8
