Conor’s way of say­ing thanks

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Will Hen­shaw

A Ruther­glen teenager has or­gan­ised a char­ity event to raise funds for the hos­pi­tal who cared for him when he was younger.

Conor Camp­bell (19), of Ci­ty­ford Cres­cent, is study­ing a HND in Me­dia and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions at City of Glas­gow Col­lege.

As part of the graded unit exam in his course, stu­dents must choose a sec­tor of the me­dia and cre­ate a fo­lio of work. The for­mer Trinity High pupil picked PR and ad­ver­tis­ing and de­cided to host a char­ity event in aid of Yorkhill Chil­dren’s Char­ity.

How­ever the col­lege course wasn’t the only rea­son he wanted to do some­thing for Yorkhill as Conor ex­plained: “I was in and out of Yorkhill when I was younger as I had se­vere skin prob­lems as a child so it is a char­ity that means a lot to me and I am hon­oured to give some­thing back.”

Af­ter con­duct­ing mar­ket re­search amongst fam­ily and friends, Conor has or­gan­ised a char­ity foot­ball tour­na­ment and raf­fle at Fern­hill Com­mu­nity Cen­tre this Satur­day (May 30) be­tween 11am and 1pm.

He added: “This is the first time I have ar­ranged such an event. I’m find­ing it quite dif­fi­cult and chal­leng­ing but also re­ally en­joy­able and I hope it all goes to plan and the day will be a suc­cess.”

The seven-a-side footie tour­na­ment is two hours long and will be made up of four teams in a group for­mat.

Prizes for the raf­fle in­clude Top a VIP booth pack­age at Light Glas­gow, a signed Mother­well FC top and ball and foot­ball can­vasses as well as smaller prizes.

Conor added: “Un­for­tu­nately all the foot­ball play­ers po­si­tions have been filled but raf­fle tick­ets and do­na­tion en­try to the event is a way for peo­ple to do­nate money to the char­ity.

“If any­one wanted to do­nate out with that or help out any way they can they can email me conor­camp­bell1995@ hot­mail.co.uk.”
