GFR WEEKLY UPDATE
GALA Fairydean Rovers are adopting a “pay what you can” policy for this Saturday's Lowland League game against East Stirlingshire where supporters of both teams will be asked to make a charitable donation at the gate. All profits from this venture will be donated to the club’s local charity partners, Scottish HART, The Rowan Bolland Trust, Callum’s Trust and The Borders Asperger’s and Autism Support Group (BAAGS).
Spectators usually pay £5 for entry to Gala Fairydean Rovers home league matches. Premier Club card holders and children under 16 normally get free entry to Lowland League games but on this occasion they will also be asked to put money in buckets at the turnstiles.
