Last month saw our 7th Stand Up night go off without a hitch at The Rugby Club in Kilmarnock, and we handed over the cheque to the Laurie and Ellie fund. But more on that later.
A full house enjoyed some great acts off the Scottish comedy scene. Compere Graham Mackie kept things going all night and enriched everyones lives with his first encounter with an exfoliating glove. John Gavin set us off with a great set including his hatred of foxes, lucky for him it wasn’t squirrels. John Speirs then enlightened the crowd with his story about the time he never met Hollywood actor Vince Vaughn before Jojo Sutherland closed the second section with tales from her life on the east coast. Des Clarke then took the roof off Bellsdale with a brilliant headline set where he talked about absolutely everything, including the time he actually met Hollywood actor James MacAvoy.
A brilliant night which actually started on a high when Ellie, Laurie and their mum visited to pick up the cheque for £1412 from The Killie Trust. The evening in the Kilmarnocks Rugby Club raised £1000 for the appeal. The further £412 was raised at Rugby Park, when before the match versus Hearts members of the Trust board were out rattling buckets and got a great response from the fans in attendance. A huge thanks from the Trust to all those in attendance on the night as well as those who did their bit at the Hearts game. Also a huge thanks again to John Gall at Brownings for the half time fayre.
Directors of The Kilmarnock Supporters Society (the Killie Trust) met with the Board of Directors of Kilmarnock Football Club and the Supporters Liaison Officer, Andrew Miller, on Saturday 14th June 2014.
In a positive and constructive meeting, the Trust set out and explained its objectives on community ownership and the meeting discussed these in some detail.
There was broad agreement that KFC and the Trust would work together on projects aimed at benefiting the Club. Further dialogue will continue on these subjects.
The Trust were greatly encouraged by the positive nature of the discussions and look forward to working with the Board going forward.
The Killie Trust encourages all Kilmarnock Supporters to support the Club and buy season tickets for the new season and take advantage of the attractive deals and incentives on offer.
Brian Chambers and his Brian Munich team has been crowned champion of the 6th KillieTrustLiga Fantasy Premierleague season. Finishing around 70 points clear of Brian McLaughlin’s Kilmarnock FC in second and a little further back was Sean Chambers in 3rd.
