On Saturday evening two of our trustees, Philip Mitchell and Louise Rooney, attended the Scottish Senior Football Referees Association (SSFRA) dinner at Hampden Park.
The evening celebrated the appointment of the refereeing team for this weekend’s Scottish Cup Final. The evening was hosted by Paul Tanner and involved a Q&A with Chic Charnley and Pat Nevin.
The SSFRA chose the Chris Mitchell Foundation as the recipients of the funds raised from this year’s dinner, including a red/yellow card game and online silent auction. Chris was a familiar face to many of those in the room on Saturday evening and in their own words they ‘had the pleasure of refereeing Chris many times during his career’ and he was a ‘credit to you all.’
We are very grateful to say that the SSFRA raised an astonishing £2,500 for the Chris Mitchell Foundation. This sum of money will be a huge boost towards the work that we have planned for the 2018/19 season.
