World Cup-themed Sportsmans Dinner for Renfrewshire's Referees

Members of Renfrewshire Referees Association recently presented two local charities with a total of £2000 after a very successful World Cup-themed Sportmans’ dinner.  The referees association held the night to raise funds in support of Alheimers Scotland and McMillan Cancer Care, two local charities nominated by the members.  Each table on the night was allocated a country, prior to the World Cup in Brazil in June.

Former Rangers star Mark Hateley provided an unorthodox Q&A session, which proved incredibly popular among the audience members who were all very keen to participate.  Former FIFA and Category 1 referee Willie Young gave a fantastic insight into his refereeing career, and some handy advice for the aspiring members too!  His hilarious and interesting speech was followed by Scottish comedian and newspaper columnist Tam Cowan, who had the entire audience in the palm of his hand right from the word go.  There was not a dry eye in the room throughout his incredibly funny routine, whether it was jokes or his audience interaction, the audience were laughing from start to finish.

Everyone in the association and their guests who attened had a fantastic time at the dinner, and the Association are delighted to have raised such a great amount of money for our two local charities, who are also thoroughly delighted with the generosity of all of those in attendance on the night.
