About Us


Mandy Mackie

I became a Trustee in May 2018. As the Trust operates throughout the Strathmore valley, they were looking for a representative from Brechin Rugby Club to join as a Trustee.  I was asked by Brechin Rugby Club to take on this role.

My involvement with the Trust has been a real eye-opener in terms of what can be achieved through rugby.  I have always enjoyed watching people play our sport I have enjoyed learning and seeing what people can achieve through rugby with the right support and guidance.  I feel I still have a lot to learn though, but I like that.  The Trust has helped me by increasing my knowledge of the opportunities available within the sport, and given me a better understanding of working with those with additional needs and how we can help them achieve their goals.

I have been involved with Brechin Rugby Club for around 15 years and I have developed a lot of knowledge about what it takes to run a rugby club.  I have held various positions within the club including Chair, Treasurer and coach, as well as other community organisations such as Brechin Bravo and Brechin Swimming Club.  I also have experience of organising large-scale events.  Over the years I have worked with a large number of groups and organisations locally and with that comes a good network of contacts.
