“EVERYONE is invited” to the funeral of Tranent fundraiser Scott Glynn.

The founder of the Walk With Scott Foundation passed away on New Year’s Day and his family have welcomed the possibility of a big turnout at his funeral on Tuesday morning (January 14).

His son, Gareth, posted on social media that the family would be saying their goodbyes to the 56-year-old at Binning Wood, between Tyninghame and Whitekirk, at 11.30am.

He said: “Scott’s wishes were to be buried in Binning Wood with his devoted dog Charlie to once again walk wild and free.

“Everyone is invited to say their own goodbyes at the woods and join the family back at the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club afterwards.

“Dress code request please is club ties, Walk With Scott t-shirts or the brightest wildest colours you have, you know what he liked.”

Scott, who was a keen rugby player, set up the Walk With Scott Foundation, which has raised more than £250,000 for various good causes through a series of walks.

Tributes have been paid by each of the county’s six rugby clubs.

Gareth added: “Scott was taken with so much still to give but we give thanks to the life he had with us and the love and friendship we shared to the end.

“Scott is gone from our lives but he will live on in the hearts of his family forever.

“Family flowers only but we will have a collection for charity if you would like to make a donation. Scott’s wish was that we give out an envelope of seeds to be scattered in his memory in a place you find special.”

Scott’s daughter Lauren said that before his passing, he had said of his funeral: “I want as many people there as want to come and I want them all to be fed.”
