The Just Giving page for the Rookies Radiothon closed on 5 July 2019 with an outstanding amount raised to support the work of Rookie Rockstars in Kirkintilloch.

The total raised at close was £17,845.

Rookie Rockstars and Rookie Minds said: “We would just like to take this time to thank everyone who donated to the cause. We are all still in shock with how much was raised in such a short space of time. Our Rookie Minds service has made a clear difference to the community and we are so thankful that we can continue to do so into 2020.”

“The biggest shout out goes to our CEO Dave Brackenridge, who took on the incredible 25 hours on-air on Revival FM, as well as the huge loss of his hair. Absolutely worthwhile though!

Thank you to our sponsors for the event: Harbour Properties, Mortgage Information Bureau and Neptune Fabrications.

Also to our hosts, Revival FM and Alpha Scotland.

Thank you so much to everyone involved. We have an incredible community here and we couldn’t have done it without you.” – Rookie Rockstars and Rookie Minds.
