Charity Challenge Cash Handover

Club secretary, Andy Williamson, was on hand to receive the latest cash boost for a local charity thanks to the club’s season-long Charity Challenge.

Former Shire player Dean McPherson, who is now area manager for main sponsors Ladbrokes, presented the cheque for £500.00 which goes to the Falkirk Children’s Rights Project.


It’s the latest in a line of charities and good causes to benefit from the Charity Challenge.

At Sunday’s Lowland League match against Spartans at Ochilview, another former Shire star, David King, assisted by club guests Alex Rae and Murdo MacLeod, as well as players from our East Stirlingshire Galaxy community teams, took part in another half-time skills challenge.

This one is due to benefit the Hollie Taylor Fund, which is raising cash to help with the treatment of a local girl with a rare form of cancer. The caused was nominated by Shire striker, Andy Rodgers, who has already undertaken his own fundraising for Hollie, and Supporters Club secretary, Trudy Wilson.
