A Message From the Rock the Rovers.......

Gavin Quinn, organiser of Rock the Rovers, has asked for the following to be posted on his behalf:

"I would like to thank everyone who came along to rock the rovers which was held at Kittys and Kandy on Sunday, August 25th. It was a great day with all the acts putting on a magnificent show that was enjoyed by all those in attendance.We raised £2346.50p for the 4 charities and Raith Rovers fc which is a great amount but it wasnt as much as we hoped to raise but its still decent. I would like to thank Mario, Grant and all the staff at Kittys for allowing us to use the venue and for looking after everyone all day.I would also like to thank every single act for their performances and for entertaining the crowd with some great music.I would like to thank the members of raith fan group fifes finest who helped with the bands gear from early morning until when the gig ended. I would finally like to thank all the sponsors of the acts because without them he gig couldn't go ahead and they are CAPERCAILLIE TRAVEL LTD,FIFES FINEST S.C,THE WINDSOR HOTEL,FYFFE`S BANANAS,O`CONNELLS BAR + DINER,L+M PLUMBING AND HEATING,CHARLEYS,KITTYS,ROVERS DOWN SOUTH,CORMACKS CAFE,THE RAITH TRUST,CRUICKSHANK GLAZIERS,RAITH 200 CLUB,STYX,JAMES COUTTS DRIVING SCHOOL,DAVID CODD,JUDY + GEORGE,W.C PLUMBING,RYAN CHAPMAN and THE ELBOW ROOM.

The money raised will be split evenly amongst all the good causes and the club. Rock theRrovers has raised almost £55,000 in its 9 years and with the 10th anniversary celebrations in 2014 we are hoping to take that up to £60,000.The organisation of next years event is in the early stages but when it is sorted out it will all be confirmed to the public. We also dont know what the future holds for Rock the Rovers but we will get next years event out the way then think about the way forward. I hope everyone comes along to join in the 10th anniversary celebrations this year."
