Fairbairn’s Fives

EARLIER this year we featured a story on Alan Fairbairn, the Greenlaw Football Coach, who started the year on an unhappy note after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of just 36.

But never one to let something get the better of him, Alan hasn’t let his condition get the better of him and he is very determined to raise awareness of Parkinson’s and raise much needed money for related charities.

The first way Alan will do this is ‘Fairbairn’s Fantastic Fives’ football tournament, kicking off at 10am at Happer Park, Greenlaw on Sunday, July 15.

Entry is £15 a team and to enter contact Alan on 07525145421 or Kev on 07784236614.
