2007 Confederation Award Winner (4th December 2008)

>Keith Cochrane collects the 2007 Confederation Award on behalf of Len Downie.

Len Downie was the recipient of the 2007 Confederation Award. Each year the performances of the Dewar Trophy winning pigeon are sent to the Confederation to be judged. Entries are received from all member unions and Scotlandís entries have twice won the award (you can click on the SHU Centenary Dinner presentation photos to see Len with the Dewar Trophy in 2007).

Keith Cochrane called in at the SHU Office to pick up the framed certificate on Len's behalf and since the photo of the winning pigeon hangs in the SHU office (kindly supplied by Jim Hannah) Keith agreed to be photographed with both the photo and the award.
