Scotland v Nor. Ireland Match – March 25th, 2015

 

TACC were delighted to be able to invite children from Aberlour Childcare Trust Glasgow Youthpoint to their first Scotland match which was the tantalising encounter capped by a 1-0 win, with the goal coming from the unlikely Christophe Berra in the 85th minute.   

 

As well as their Scotland tops, £10 spending money and tickets, very kindly provided by SFA/ SSC the kids were chuffed to see their names illuminating the big stadium screen at half time.

 

We think the outcome of the night is perhaps best summed up in the words of the kids and their guardians for the night.

 

2015-03-mfsm-sm"Our boys that went along had an absolute ball and are still talking about what a brilliant night they had. Our youngest attendee was just 10 and our eldest, 16. All of them had a wonderful experience, so thank you."

 

"Thanks to TACC, the young people got an experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives; their first visit to Scotland's National Stadium, Scotland top on, scarf round the neck and one foot hot dog to keep them warm, all courtesy of TACC. On behalf of those young people, thank you for making it a night to remember."

 

"These children come from areas of Glasgow that have high levels of poverty and deprivation and we work really hard to give them positive role models, activities and interests – things to divert them away from hanging about on the streets and getting into trouble with the police. Some of these kids have quite chaotic home lives and it’s safe to say they’d be unlikely to get the chance to go and watch their national team play. To have spending money, an evening out and a football top to take home is something very special indeed for them.

 

“Thank you for giving our young people a very special experience and for all you continue to do for children”.

IRELAND & ENGLAND – “CIRCLE”

 

Oh what a night! Better still............ two nights!

 

1-250On two cold nights in November and miles from home (Celtic Park as opposed to Hampden) 10 of Scotland’s youngest fans braved the elements and joined in the fantastic support of their national team. The opposition were Ireland, in what was a crucial Qualifying match for Euro 2016 and the other a simple friendly against them from south of the border.


2-250Most of us remember the excitement of our first match – hope, expectation, bewilderment, amazement, awe, exhilaration, joy......

 

 

......TACC had worked with the Circle Charity to enable 10 fabulous kids to attend their First Scotland match and experience the excitement. No idea why Liam might have been apprehensive, standing next to two of Glasgow’s finest – but he met up with Bonnie a bit later and fell in love, so we’re told.

 

 

Thanks to our sponsors SFA/SSC, all of the children received tickets for themselves and carer or parent and were wearing their new Scotland tops with £10 pocket money for the game, provided by TACC.

 

3-250

   

“Good, brilliant, exciting.

Magic to see Scotland –

it was the best”

 

 

 

4-250

 

 

 

It’s OK really to have your scarf upside down, especially as the game turned on its head too – I don’t think Che was too bothered, as long as he was waving it.

 

 

 

 

“Thank you very, very, very, very, very, very, very much – the best experience ever”

 

5-250Reece even produced a new tactic which we’ve shared with Gordon Strachan and the best way to enjoy half time is with a Hampden pie (some would say!!)

 

6-250

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From Circle – “What a fantastic time was had!!! Thank you TACC for the opportunity for some of the children and parents/carers we support to attend their first Scotland match.”

 

From our footsoldiers-
Elaine “Fantastic job you guys do. Looks like good fun had by all”
Paige “Amazing photos and what an amazing job you all do”
Paul – “Great to see the future foot soldiers enjoying themselves”

 

Thanks to everyone who is able to support us here at TACC to make the lives of our kids here in Scotland that bit special.


 
A Family Christmas - Appeal 2014 Print E-mail

The Tartan Army Children’s Charity are again delighted to announce the continued partnership with Includem to bring a family Christmas some of Scotland’s most disadvantaged communities this Christmas.

 

The £10,000 donated by the TACC will be spent on improving Christmas for the vulnerable young people and families throughout Scotland who use Includem’s services.  Includem provides 24/7 one-to-one support to some of Scotland's most vulnerable, high risk and challenging young people.

Most of us take for granted that we can spend some time with our families and enjoy the festive period our donation will ensure that families get a Christmas dinner, or an outing to the Christmas lights. A donation like this helps Includem to go the extra mile, giving young people a Christmas that they will never forget.

 

In 2013, the £10,000 donation funded Christmas experiences from Christmas dinners to outings and gifts - and much more. For some individuals and families, this was the first experience of its kind. There was even some funds left over to have a family fun day back in August this year which everyone enjoyed and meant that some fun could be had during the year as well and shows us that Includem continue to put the full donation to very good use.

 

At our Christmas party this year at Hampden Park on the 29th November Scotland manager, Gordon Strachan, kindly agreed to present the cheque to David Ferrier the Includem Partneship Development Manager. David was thrilled to accept the donation and to continue the partnership with TACC which has helped so many children since our first donation in 2012.

 

 

Hosted by Sheelagh McLaren from STV and entertainment provided once again by the mighty Torridon it was a fantastic evening and we raised in the region of £2000 towards the Christmas appeal, which is fantastic. We still need your help however to ensure that TACC can continue to help worthy organizations like Includem and bring some joy to children over this Christmas period.

 

We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.
