General Knowledge Quiz
BairnsTrust hosted our first quiz night of 2010 on Monday 22nd March in the Castings Club. A good turnout helped to make the evening a success once again. Congratulations go to the ShireTrust team who were the eventual winners after a tense tie-break round of questions! These events help to add to the BairnsTrust coffers and a big thank you is due to the Castings Club for hosting the event and providing the sandwiches, as well as to everyone who donated raffle prizes and to our very own committee member Quizmaster - David Mackintosh.
Goodie Bag Give-away - Help Needed
BairnsTrust are always on the look-out for keen supporters who are willing to lend a hand. This could be selling merchandise on the Trust stall an hour before a home match, attending and participating in the monthly meetings on the third Monday of every month or helping to organise a fundraising event. It doesn't have to be much but any help will be appreciated. If you are interested, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability or present yourself to the Trust stall on a matchday.
For the final home matches after the split, it is hoped to have a children's goodie bag give-away of old programme stock/videos etc, as has been done in previous years. It is intended that this will cover all three home stands, so extra help will be needed. As always, there are two stalls on the main stand concourse which have official Falkirk FC merchandise on sale, back stock of old programmes which you may have missed, unique BairnsTrust merchandise not available anywhere else plus the usual team will be on hand to take your queries or questions.
You can also still browse the existing BairnsTrust merchandise online HERE.
