"I am writing to enquire if any fellow BairnsTrust Members could possibly help. Currently work for Shelter the Homelessness Charity based in South Lanarkshire. Our project team are working with a number of young boys who through no fault of their own are currently homeless and living with their parents in temporary accommodation. As a consequence of this they have very little personal belongings. They are like most young kids, obsessed by football but find it difficult because of their current situation to keep up with things in the football world. It is with this in mind I ask if any Trust Members would be willing to donate any old football magazines from the last year that we could pass on to these kids, eg. Shoot, Match Weekly, English/Scottish Club Magazines, Rangers News, Celtic View, Hearts Weekly ... and the like would be ideal."
Would appreciate any assistance offered and any documents could be handed into the BairnsTrust stall located on the concourse in the Main Stand at home games for uplift.

Subject: SPL Golf Day - Charity Event
Date: Fri, 2 Mar 2007 11:54:35 -0000
Hi, my name is Amanda Robertson, and I am part of a team organising the SPARKS (SPort Aiding medical Research for KidS) SPL golf charity event.
22 teams which consist of 2 guests plus a celebrity Scottish Premier League past player, will compete over the 18 hole course at Letham Grange, Colliston, near Arbroath.
The day will start with bacon rolls and coffee followed by a shot gun start. There will be on course charity challenges and a putting competition throughout the day. The day will culminate in a prize giving and a buffet with raffle and auction.
We would be delighted if any of the Falkirk past players would like to take part in the day to help raise the profile of the event, thus raising more much needed funds for charity. It would also be excellent if you could donate a prize for the raffle and auction which will take part on the day, with all proceeds going to SPARKS.
Could you please get back to me at your earliest convenience with information on past players who are interested in attending the charity event.
