In memory of brave Mark who battled pancreatic cancer
Airdrieonians Supporters’ Trust’s series of Mark Allison tribute events helped raise thousands for three charities that were close to the tragic superfan’s heart.
Mark lost his brave battle with pancreatic cancer last summer and the ‘Death Disco’ and sponsored walk events that were held to coincide with the first anniversary of his funeral raised more than £5000.
The walk saw supporters trek from Maggie’s Lanarkshire to the Excelsior Stadium.
It was followed by an evening of live music which was enjoyed by more than 150 revellers, who honoured not only Mark but also others who have lost their lives to cancer.
St Andrew’s Hospice, Pancreatic Cancer Scotland and Maggie’s Lanarkshire each received cheques for £1300.
