Contribution to the CommunityYoung Kilmarnock are the proud recipients of the ‘Contribution to the Community 2013’ award following the presentation at the Westsound Radio Cream of Ayrshire Awards at the Brig O’Doon House Hotel in Ayr.
Husband and wife Bobby and Susan Russell have been the mainstays of our Committee for more years than they will admit too and it has become a very big part of their life.
Bobby, Chair of Young Kilmarnock, could not contain his pride -
“It was fantastic for our organisation to even be considered as nominees for this award never mind to find ourselves as winners. I’m so proud to accept it on behalf of all the many volunteers who dedicate their time and efforts to make Young Kilmarnock the overwhelming success story it has become.”
Susan also said “It was a very emotional evening and I admit to shedding a wee tear when I heard we’d won.”
Pictured are Tracey, Susan (with the award) and Bobby from the YK Committee
and the Provost of East Ayrshire, Councillor Jim Todd.
The Committee would sincerely like to thank the parents of members who nominated us for this award and to the many others who took time to vote for us.
