Donna Kennedy is currently the Regional Director for Vets Now. But she is most widely known for her time on the Scotland Women’s Rugby team.
After starting playing at 19 in her hometown of Biggar, she has played for many clubs over her career including Heriot-Watt University, Murrayfield Wanderers, Leeds RFC, Edinburgh Accies, Royal High and Worcester.
Over her Scotland career, she played in 5 world cups (1994, 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010), several European Cups and so many 6 Nations she has lost count!
She continued to play for Scotland and on the 18th March 2007 she was the first female to reach 100 caps, and the 6th rugby player in the world to reach 100 caps. Donna reached 115 caps in her career – the highest number of caps held by a Scottish player ever!
She retired from playing in 2010 and now coaches alongside her day job. In 2014, she was inducted into Clydesdale District Sports Council Hall of Fame. And in 2015 the Donna Kennedy Cup was introduced. In 2017 she was the first-ever Woman to be inducted into the Scotland Rugby Hall of Fame.
Join us on the 8th of March at 6 pm to hear about her life, her career and have the opportunity to ask any questions!
