Buddies Vs Jags- Burns Day Can Collection.

On Saturday 25th January a small group of hardy fundraisers collected £498 in just under 90 minutes!
We were collecting at the Saint Mirren vs Partick Thistle Game (nil-nil, att 4660)
The weather was typically dreich for Burns Day, but the generosity of the supporters warmed our hearts- or maybe that was the coffee afterwards!
Thanks to Saint Mirren for letting us collect and giving us tickets to the match, and also to each of our collectors: Brian Kerr, Megan and Tom Lafferty, Chris and Rob McDonald, Pamela Watt and Don Mcqueen. And of course thanks to all the generous Buddies and Jags fans!
