Renfrewshire Sports Charity Open Day

EVERY Buddie is invited along to party and soak up the free entertainment, fun and food on Sunday (June 15) at a special celebration to mark the launch of the newly formed Renfrewshire Sports Charity.

There will be something for everyone at the summer BBQ and Open Day at Pro-Life in Paisley which is operated by the charity to raise funds for ACCORD and St Vincent’s hospices.

The centre in New Sneddon Street will be rocking as the doors open on the first big event to put RSC in the spotlight with cheerleading from the fabulous Rockettes, live music from Entertainment Express and pony rides for the kids.

There’s also a children’s entertainer, face painting, games and bouncy castles for younger visitors to enjoy as they whoop it up for hours of endless fun at the big bash which kicks off at noon and will run right through to 6pm.

Dads can celebrate Father’s Day too showing off their footballing skills by taking part in any one of a number of keepie-uppie competitions and fighting it out to be crowned champion for the day following in the footsteps of keepie-up king Johnstone’s Graeme Lightbody.

And with a complimentary buffet, BBQ and drinks as visitors arrive organisers are hoping to see hundreds of folk from all over Renfrewshire turn up hungry to enjoy the free fun experience.

Gayle Brannigan, chief executive of RSC, said: “It’s party time at Pro-Life to put Renfrewshire Sports Charity in the spotlight and we want everyone to come along and have a fabulous time in a carnival atmosphere. It is going to be a great day with a busy programme of events and loads to do and enjoy.

“All folk have to do is give us a call and we will organise their complimentary passes for this event.

“The members of Pro-Life gym are playing a major role in supporting our hospices right here in the heart of Renfrewshire by helping us raise vital funds for people who need the specialised care both St Vincent’s and ACCORD give at one of the most devastating times in any families’ lives.

“Every pound profit from every membership will go to the hospices that need thousands of pounds every week just to keep going. Our charity is working hard every day for our hospices and we hope this summer BBQ and open day will help introduce us to those who don’t yet know about our work.

“We want to see the place buzzing on Sunday so there’s an open invitation to come along and join our party. All folk have to do is give us a call and we will organise their complimentary passes for a great day out.”

Helen Simpson, chief executive at ACCORD, said: “We are excited and delighted to be chosen by Renfrewshire Sports Charity to be the recipients of their fund raising efforts. It is an exciting time for all of us.”

Kate Lennon, chief executive at St Vincent’s, added: “It’s thrilling that the hospice is going to benefit from the work of the new charity which is sharing its profits between the two hospices. By working out and keeping healthy at Pro-Life people are supporting us.”

All you have to do to get your complimentary tickets to the big event is call Pro-Life on 0141-889-5027 and give staff your name.

Renfrewshire Sports Charity was set up after Pro-Life owner Alex Whelan gifted his successful gym to them to be operated to raise cash for ACCORD and St Vincent’s hospices.
