Billy Hunter, 1949 – 2015

Billy HunterEveryone at West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative has been deeply saddened by the untimely passing of Billy on 22nd August 2015, at Hairmyres Hospital East Kilbride. Billy has been a pillar of WWHC for over 20 years and all staff and Committee members who have had the privilege of working with Billy so fully appreciate the enormous contribution Billy has made to WWHC, the Whitlawburn Community Resource Centre and Whitcomm.

Billy was the salt of the earth, a diamond who had no time for bureaucracy and a fierce campaigner for social justice. A man of unswerving principle who would never shy away from fighting for what was right. A warm heart, blessed with humour and compassion made Billy a very endearing and hugely popular person, coupled with an incisive mind and a tremendous intellect made Billy a formidable adversary for those who opposed Billy’s view of life.

Billy will be sadly missed and his contribution to the great successes of WWHC is testimony to the tremendous and forceful character Billy was.

WWHC will not be the same without Billy.

The event featured four teams competing for the Phil Welsh trophy. The inaugural winners of the trophy were UTD Sports, who also provide football coaching sessions for youngsters at WWHC’s Centre Circle sports pitch.

The Phil Welsh Welfare Fund was established following the passing of Phil Welsh MBE, a founder member and original chair of WWHC, in 2013.

The event was sponsored by Npower with a number of raffle prizes being kindly donated by WWHC contractors and local businesses.

Paul Farrell, director of WWHC, said: “The event was an outstanding success and was fundamentally about 3 things. Firstly, a commemoration of Phil Welsh, who was a massive influence on everyone at WWHC. Secondly it was about raising a significant sum of money to support the Phil Welsh Welfare Fund, and thirdly it was about having fun, with all spectators and players thoroughly enjoying the day.”

The Phil Welsh Welfare Fund helps alleviate poverty in West Whitlawburn by providing food parcels, grants and loans to anyone in West Whitlawburn who is suffering from the effects of poverty and hardship.

Phil Welsh Jnr added: “It was a great day, a fantastic tribute to my dad and knowing the poorest in our society will benefit from the proceeds is really heartening.”
