'A' list celebrities support Airdrie's Diamond Sensory Room

To help fund a sensory room at Airdrieonians FC's Excelsior stadium to benefit local kids including my own son, I've called in the help of some of my celebrity friends and acquaintances who have signed Airdrie FC shirts for us. 

Airdrie are the first football club in Scotland to install a sensory room at their stadium for home games which will allow children with sensory process disorders - such as autism - to attend matches in comfort.

Top names who've already signed Airdrie jerseys include Ricky Gervais, Mark Hamill, William Shatner and Tom Hanks.


These auctions have sent us well on the way to reaching our £10,000 target. 

Airdrie Supporters Trust are sponsors of The Ross Owen Show.
