“This however would not be possible without the help of all our dedicated, passionate and committed members helping to excel the club in all areas.

“However, we wouldn’t be nearly as successful without the support of our parents and friends so thank you.”

The past couple of months Kilraughts YFC have been very busy with various 
competitions such as the art festival where the club gained 
recognition for best choral piece.

As well as that Kilraughts YFC have been busy with their parents’ night and sports night.
