Benefit concert by Barbara Dickson in the Alhambra for Pars United

ALHAMBRA DAFC

Having donated to the 'Save the Pars' campaign earlier this year, and subsequently becoming a member of the Pars Supporters' Trust, Barbara Dickson has finally been able to fit a benefit concert in to her hectic schedule for Pars United. The concert will be held at the Alhambra theatre in her native Dunfermline on Friday 7th March with tickets priced at just £20 (plus booking fee).

It was whilst appearing on the Tam Cowan / Stuart Cosgrove Radio Scotland football programme 'Off the Ball' that Barbara first announced she would be happy to help out in any way she could, to raise funds for her hometown club.  A spokesman for Pars United said:-

"This is sure to be a popular event featuring one of Scotland's finest female vocalists. It will give not only her fans but fans of the football club as well, the opportunity to see Barbara perform in her hometown knowing that the proceeds will be helping our Club".

Since hearing of her offer to help out, the Pars Supporters' Trust has been busy arranging the concert. Drew Main, Vice-Chair of the Trust said :-

"We met Barbara in October to present her with her membership certificate of the PST and she was clearly keen to do more to help us so it's fantastic that we've been able to bring this show together with the help of our friends at the Alhambra".

This will be Barbara Dickson's first appearance in Dunfermline since 2010 and follows her highly successful 25 date UK tour in October/November which included a sell out performance at Rothes Halls in Glenrothes.

Tickets for the concert are on sale now from the Alhambra box office or online via Ticketmaster.

The Pars Supporters' Trust was established in 2004. Its vision is to focus the support and passion for the Pars through the Trust to influence the key issues affecting our common goals. The profit for all will be watching the Pars going from strength to strength. We will unite all supporters on a common platform to develop and deliver our support for the maximum benefit of the Club and the communities in which we live. Since the acquisition of Dunfermline Athletic FC by Pars United, the Pars Supporters' Trust is now the single largest shareholder in the football club.
