Foundation Selected as Beneficiary of David Gray Testimonial

The Foundation is delighted to announce that we have been selected as one of the beneficiaries of a series of testimonial events that will be honouring Hibs legend, David Gray.

David has kindly chosen the Foundation after creating a close relationship with us throughout his playing career and will work with the Foundation’s team on selecting the various channels that will receive the funds that are raised.

David joined Hibs in 2014, making 177 appearances and scoring 15 goals before taking up a coaching role within the club.

A stoppage time winner in the 2016 Scottish Cup Final secured David’s place in Easter Road folklore as he captained the first Hibs side to Scottish Cup glory in 114 years.
