Kelvin Smith celebrated 40 years in business last August, and to mark this special landmark Managing Director Steven Travers committed to paying £40 towards the Glasgow based charity, which was founded in June 2020 during the covid pandemic to support people who were experiencing mental health problems, whenever Dom was on the score-sheet.
Dom produced the goods by finding the net 12 times with Kelvin Smith generously rounding up their donation to £500 with Steven saying: “Everyone at Kelvin Smith checks in to see how Queen’s Park are doing in their games and then checks in to see if Dom has scored. We kept a running tally throughout the season and were delighted with the dozen times the name Thomas appeared in the list of goalscorers.”
“The Mental Health Walk and Talk Charity is a very worthwhile cause and Dom, as well as Queen’s Park, has picked up new fans from the people that use them.”
The first Mental Health Walk and Talk took place at Springburn Park in June 2020 with 7 people and the group have seen that number rise to over 400 with their next meeting taking place on Wednesday, July 5 with 7.15pm start.

Queen’s Park Head of Commercial Kieran Koszary said: “I am delighted that Kelvin Smith’s innovative way of raising money for The Mental Health Walk and Talk Charity has secured such a handsome donation.”
“It was Dom’s best ever season in terms of goals in the Championship and he is delighted to have played his part in the fund-raising.”
