County Fans fund climbs higher and former player Ali Nicol explains the Ben Nevis Challenge

The County Fans Ground Improvement Fund (GIF) continues to gather support in the Community. A fans' spokesperson told the Gurn:

"Since last Sunday’s Whisky Tasting (April 14th) more that £2,200 has poured into the Ground Improvements Fund. This includes proceeds from Dodo’s Tasting , Donald’s Ceilidh, cash from the winding up of Soccer 7’s (£387), a donation of £100 from the Over 50’s Exercise Class at the Community Centre and other private donations and Panel Beater contributions. The total is now in excess of £14,000 and still rising. Another big boost will come from the Richard Gordon talk on Thursday (25th) and the Tombola the following week (May2). It was anticipated there would be a natural slow down on contributions to the Panel Beater Fund. We want to thank sincerely everyone who have already generously donated. We have many objectives in terms of enhancing Station Park so this appeal will be ongoing and if you want to become a Panel beater check this site for details."

On Saturday through at Keith the Gurn had a chance to catch up with Ali Nicol and we asked him about the fund-raising Ben Nevis climb that is planned for September. Here's what he told us presented in the video interview below.
