That the Parliament commends the members of the Kilmarnock-based Prime Performance Community Team on recently ascending Ben Nevis to raise money for the South Ayrshire Autistic Society (SAAS); understands that the gym group raised £1,165 for the community-based based charity, which provides support to children and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD); notes that, on 29 May 2021, 20 climbers from the team conquered the UK’s highest peak in support of SAAS, and thanks them for their efforts.
