Bring A Gift Appeal details: November 23
We can confirm further details of Saturday’s Bring A Gift appeal, which will be held at this Saturday’s home match v Hearts (November 23).
The project is run by the Kilmarnock FC Supporters Association in association with EACHa and the Salvation Army and aims to help put a smile on the faces of children and families in the area, who may be struggling.
- Collection stations will be located outside the Moffat Stand and Chadwick Stand from 2pm
- Please wrap gifts and mark whether they are for a boy or a girl and the age group
The scheme has proved to be very successful in the past two seasons and we hope supporters will be able to contribute again this year.
With our festive home fixtures following on one midweek (St Johnstone – Dec 4) and close to Christmas (Motherwell – Dec 21), the collection is running slightly earlier this year but we will notify fans of additional collections points after November 23 should you wish to take part.
Iain Sherry, KFCSA Chairman, said “Once again we are delighted to be involved in helping bring joy to kids in Ayrshire who may not have enjoyed Christmas without the help of Kilmarnock fans.
“We hope that fans will be as generous as they have the last two years.”
Janice Grant from East Ayrshire Churches Homelessness Action (EACHa) said: “EACHa and the local Salvation Army have been overwhelmed by the generosity of Kilmarnock supporters over the past two Christmas appeals.
“Last year we needed four cars and a van to take the gifts from Rugby Park.
“The gifts will be delivered by children’s services to local families in plenty of time for Christmas. Your kindness makes a big difference to many children at this time of year, many of whom would otherwise have had very little else on Christmas Day.
“Thank you to everyone who takes part and brings something along.”
