On Friday November 29, London Scottish Football Club hosts ‘St. Andrew’s Day at The Savoy – a celebration of Scots in London.’
Hosted by Kelly Cates, this flagship event is seen as an opportunity for all Scots to come together and celebrate Scotland’s national day whilst raising money for two worthwhile charities and London Scottish.
A high class live auction will be led by comedian Fred MacAulay with money raised for two charities that provide care and welfare for young people – The Carer’s Trust, charity of HRH Princess Anne, Royal Patron of London Scottish, and Yorkhill Children’s Charity based in Glasgow.
Entertainment during the inaugural event, sponsored by Caledonia Best, will be provided by Scottish singers Carly Connor, a talented 20-year-old from Paulo Nutini’s group of musicians, and teenager Ruairidh McDonald.
Frank McKay and his band The Clan will also take to the stage as will stellar public speaker Jim Brown, President of the Scottish Highland Games Association.
A special accolade, The Great London Scot Award, will be presented to Judy and/or Jamie Murray on behalf of tennis star Andy Murray.
London Scottish chief executive Kenny Baillie said: “It’s our view at London Scottish that no one really “owns” St. Andrew’s Day in London and that the opportunity exists for London Scottish to create a major annual event in the city which celebrates Scotland’s national day.
“A lot of hard work has gone into creating what will be a really special occasion and we see this becoming a permanent annual fixture in the Club’s calendar and a “must attend” event for Scots in London.”
