Cheque Handed over at Stand Up (If You Love Killie) 7

StandUpWebAd7Last 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.Ellie&Laurie

Hope to see you all at the next one.
