The Kirkside Bar has raised an impressive £630 for Andy’s Man Club, Perth branch. The money was raised in memory of Kirkside regular, Barry Angus, who sadly passed away recently.
A signed Christian Dailly, West Ham shirt was the prize on offer – a fitting tribute to Barry who was an avid West Ham supporter.
The signed shirt was donated by bar manager, Alan Cameron and a Bonus Ball format decided the winner.
The Bonus Ball in Saturday’s National Lottery Draw was number 16, so the shirt was won by Tomi Burns.
Alan Cameron, commented, “We’re delighted to have sold all of the numbers and in doing so raising £630 to support the superb work that the guys at Andy’s Man Club do for our local community.
Barry was a great person, who was well-liked by everyone.
Congratulations to Tomi for winning the signed top and I’d also like to say a massive thank you to everyone who purchased a number.
A Special thanks to Laura and the team at ‘Half A Tanner’ for their support and assistance in helping make this fundraiser so successful.”
Alex McClintock, Andy’s Man Club, Project Development Champion, followed, “Thanks to The Kirkside Bar and all the locals for raising money to support our work but more importantly helping to raise awareness of Andys Man Club, especially after the sad loss of Barry.”
