SPFL Trust Festive Friends programme visits Rugby Park

in #KillieStories December 15, 2017

Kilmarnock FC were delighted to host the SPFL Trust as they launched its acclaimed Festive Friends project for 2018.

Killie stars Kris Boyd, Gary Dicker and Gordon Greer joined 20 guests including 100-year old James Richmond as they enjoyed a magical afternoon of ballroom dancing, music, fantastic food and great companionship.

Other guests included Ian Presly (92), who attends Kilmarnock’s Football Memories programme, and Dr Richard Mills (95). 

Festive Friends was born out of an opportunity to create something special for those suffering the effects of isolation at a time of year when they need it most.

Every guest enjoys a tasty Christmas lunch, and the means to get there to their local club, but more importantly the companionship and support often so desperately needed for elderly, vulnerable people.  

Kilmarnock directors were also present on the day alongside SPFL Trust chief executive Nicky Reid as well as SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster and chairman Murdoch MacLennan.
