It's a Knockout


On 19 June I attended a busy fundraising ‘It’s a Knockout’ family fun day at Valefield, Kilbirnie.

As well as giant racing, tackling an obstacle course with a glass of water on one’s head and a tug of war etc; there was a DJ, children’s entertainment and a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

The event was on behalf of the Greig Steven Memorial , which was set up in April 2016 by Greg's parents after the 25-year old had sadly passed away.

Greig, who was from Kilbirnie and worked as a horse groomer for Police Scotland, died of a rare and aggressive cancer, cholangiocarcinoma, which attacks the body’s bile duct and is known as the “silent killer”.

If you or a person living in Scotland and battling cancer and would like to be considered for a stay at Greig’s House, please contact
