Friends of Innerpeffray Library (FOIL) Talk – Jilly McCord, MasterChef, Rugby, History: an eclectic life
June 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£5 – £10
Continuing with our theme of television celebrities, in June FOIL members will be treated to an evening in the company of Jilly McCord, who is best known to some as a finalist in the cooking television series MasterChef. However, looking at her entry in Wikipedia, that is certainly not her only claim to fame. Jilly played lock in a successful career in Woman’s’ Rugby Union but in 2002 was told that she would not make the national team unless she improved her pace by losing weight. Undaunted she dropped a spectacular 11 stones and was selected for the national team. In 2007, she was named as Scottish captain. By day she is a history teacher at Dollar Academy where she is hugely supported by her pupils. We look forward to what will be a truly inspirational evening learning more about her life.
