Board thank Killie Trust for £50,000 investment
The Board of Kilmarnock Football Club would like to say a heartfelt thanks to The Killie Trust for offering to bring forward the scheduled handover of £40,000 of ‘Trust in Killie’ funds.
In addition to this, The Trust have also kindly donated a further £10,000 of general funds to the club, taking the total to £50,000.
A vote held saw 98% support the proposal, which will be a valuable help to the club as we deal with the effects of the shutdown, caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The bond forged between Kilmarnock FC and The Killie Trust in recent years has continued to grow and this wonderful gesture is just the latest example, which shows ‘Together We Are Stronger’.
Director Cathy Jamieson said: “Everybody at Kilmarnock Football Club is extremely grateful for the work of The Killie Trust. Over the weekend, we’ve seen a huge rise in the number of people joining the Trust and pledging regular subscriptions to ‘Trust in Killie’.
“This shows just how much the club means to Killie fans. Even when there is no football on the immediate horizon, our supporters are stepping up and backing the team in these unprecedented times.”
Our partnership with The Killie Trust has already seen £100,000 investment for a place on the board with Cathy Jamieson bringing the views of fans and representing The Killie Trust on the Kilmarnock FC board.
Our collaboration has led to the installation of safe standing areas at Rugby Park, brand new uniforms for our Killie cheerleaders as well as the introduction of a matchday volunteer programme.
Cathy added: “At this point we don’t know when we will all be back together watching Killie but I know we all want to stay connected to the club in any way possible.
“In these difficult times, the club and The Killie Trust are looking at practical things that people can do to stay involved.
“We will continue to keep fans updated through all of our club channels as the Coronavirus shutdown develops.”
