Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Working For You -

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.

The Sup­port­ers’ Trust’s Lynsey Cald­well, left, and Dougy All­sop are pic­tured pre­sent­ing che­ques to Lorna McCaf­ferty of St An­drew’s Hos­pice, sec­ond left, and Gayle Cobain from Mag­gie’s La­nark­shire.
