Chancers, Dancers and Romancers

By Kevin Donnelly.

Some people in the Sunshine Appeal upper echelons are aware I have written a book and all proceeds from the book are going to the Sunshine Appeal. As such, John Daly has put the squeeze on one certain Stuart Cosgrove to get me on Off the Ball to promote the book.

So this is one for your diary.

I am appearing on Off the Ball on Radio Scotland on the 7th of November. It kicks off at 12 and I will be plugging my new book “Chancers, Dancers and Romancers”.

The book will be available in hard copy in the next couple of weeks. It is currently available on kindle if you wish to purchase it.

Regarding the show, I am bricking it 😉


Kelburn Brewery Donation

At last night’s WESTA meeting (30th August), Derek Moore (MD at Kelburn Brewing) presented a cheque on behalf of the brewery to the Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal. Kelburn had pledged to donate to The Appeal for every bottle of their “Tartan Army” beer sold at Lidl. The campaign raised £500 for the Sunshine Appeal.

‘Chemo’ Ducks For Yorkhill

By John Daly
On the morning of 7th July (Tuesday) at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Glasgow, the Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal handed over six “chemo ducks” to Sister Jean Kirkwood, the Ward Manager.
The “chemo ducks” were a gift to the hospital from Aoibheaan’s Pink Tie, a children’s cancer charity in Dublin who themselves were the recipients of a £5000/€7000 donation from the Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal when the Scots were over in Ireland for the Euro Qualifier match in June.
Sister Kirkwood said, “We are extremely grateful to Aoibheann’s Pink Tie for this gift. It’s true that concern for children fighting cancer knows no boundaries and it’s great to see football being used as a vehicle to bring fans of countries together in this wonderful cause. Whilst we will be continuing to use our own “chemo cows”, these were a very welcome one-off gift from Ireland”.
