10 thousand reasons to smile

Ten Thousand Reasons to Smile

 At the recent first home league game of the season against Partick Thistle, in addition to the unfurling of the League One champions flag, members of the AU500 Fund Committee presented a cheque to the club for the fantastic amount of £10,000. 

 Pictured are committee members Willie McCulloch, Robert Ritchie and Jamie Garrett presenting the cheque to Ayr United managing director Lewis Grant accompanied by Ayr United Director and AU500 Fund Committee member Mark Pettigrew.

 The fund has now donated £31,000 to the Ayr United playing budget since its launch in August 2016. It’s also grown to 135 members making monthly contributions ranging from £5 to £50. 

 Lewis Grant said ” the donations made to the AU500 Fund really do make a difference to our playing budget and we are incredibly grateful to the members. On behalf of the club, I’d really like to thank them for their generosity.
