TODAY the Irvine Times launches our Save Our Sports Club Campaign.

Kilwinning Sports Club has proven to be vital lifeline for the whole Ayrshire Community.

In the short term the club needs a cash boost, but long term they need sustained support, in the form of new members and users.

This is your club for your community - act now and do what you can.

Even £1 could make a difference.

KSC started as the dream of two Kilwinning dads who longed for better sports facilities for their kids.

The pair pulled together with likeminded parents and a development plan was put in place, a constitution adopted, and in July 2000 Kilwinning Community Sports Club was born.

Since then the club has been at the heart of the community to promote football development, health, fitness and community wellbeing.
