Peter Campbell from Campbell Craft recently got in touch with us with a very generous offer.
Peter has just launched a new range of jewellery that includes pieces with a Tartan Army theme and has offered £1 profit to TACC from each Tartan Army piece sold.


Peter hand carves all of these pieces himself and then has them cast in solid stainless steel so they are unique to him. He has recently launched his "Gallant forty twa" collection of which the Tartan Army pieces are a part.

Not only that, if you buy any of the other non-Tartan Army themed pieces in the collection and write TACC in your order then £1 will also come to TACC from those pieces so it's win-win for us.


So why not pop over to the Campbell Craft Facebook page (link below) and have a browse, if something catches your eye then just send Peter a message. They don't cost the earth (all pieces are 9.99 + p&p) and are all unique to Peter's design.


These would make great Christmas, birthday presents or just a keepsake and you'd be helping Scotlands disadvantaged children at the same time.



"These works are a part of the "Gallant forty twa" collection, 42 pieces of jewellery with the good of Scotland in mind These ones on here are for the Tartan Army supporters. For each piece sold £1 will be given to "TACC". The Tartan Army Children's Charity".

Thanks Peter for this great offer. Campbell Craft.

France v Scotland 2007 Stories Print E-mail

TACC Ambassador and long time supporter, David Dickson, has approached us with a fantastic idea for a TACC fundraiser. David wants to create and publish a book of stories centered around our glorious victory over France back in 2007. To achieve this David is calling on you to submit your stories and memories of the game. We think it is a fantastic idea so here it is in his own words…..


“To raise money for the Tartan Army Children’s Charity I am trying to pull together a book comprising of people’s memories of our fantastic win over  France in Paris. It would be great to hear from as many of you as possible to ensure that the book covers a broad a spectrum of our support and shows the lengths that many of us go to while following the national team, not that we don’t enjoy ourselves while we do so!


There is so much surrounding this match I’m sure that we could fill a book no problem: The scramble for tickets, the many different methods of transport used to get to Paris, the car outside the Auld Alliance, the march from the Eiffel Tower to the stadium, us filling the stadium at a supposed away match, McFadden’s wonder goal and of course the celebrations that followed.


It doesn’t matter if you want to submit one line, one page or an entire book, I will edit submissions where appropriate but other than this it will be your work and every single person who has their story used will have their name in a little piece of Tartan Amy history.”


So over to you folks, please submit any stories or pictures via e-mail to:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it


100% of the books profits will go to TACC.

Jog 4 Hampden Run Report Print E-mail



Jog 4 Hampden (from left- Andrew Milne, Stuart Doyle, Mark Graham and Chris Strother) ran 300 miles (while dribbling a football!) over 10 days between 30th August and 8th September this year to raise money for TACC and to help disadvantaged children. Stuart, Andrew, Chris and Mark have been kind enough to give us a report of their adventures, hardships and also the nicer experiences that they went through to complete this extraordinary challenge. So in their own words.......... 


"So we did it. It seems like an eternity ago when we all agreed to Stuart’s plan of dribbling a football 300 miles from the Scottish mainland’s most Northerly point to our national stadium in time for kick off of the World Cup qualifiers, but from that point it’s been a pretty epic journey.

We trained hard in preparation but we also made every effort to keep laughing and that was an ethos we were desperate to maintain throughout the run. Resounding advice on the long journey up was that in order to complete this challenge it was essential that we enjoy it, and did we?


Well, there were undoubtedly some tough times that included the frustration of the Dounreay rush hour on day 1 and the overwhelming feeling of dread during day 2 when team mates were picking up injuries and morale took a bit of a dent so early into the event.

There was also the long monotonous canal run on day 6 that seemed to last an eternity, and Mark’s unplanned visit to hospital on day 7. Day 8 threw up the worst weather of the trip where three of us battled the west highland way in a continual down pour and strong head winds, meaning that despite several gear changes and extended breaks in attempt to warm up; we were always wet and cold, and usually in the middle of nowhere with no option of shelter. In contrast Mark may have been dry and warm but had to endure the frustration of being part of the support when all he wanted was to run.

And then there was day 9, touted as one of the easy days but in reality the previous days had taken their toll and be it an ankle, a knee, a shin, or all three, we were all suffering and running through pain that in a normal environment would justify a visit to a medical professional and a week in front of the TV, an option that we didn’t really have.




Sure there were some pretty tough times but we soon realised these frustrations and pains were quickly replaced with a reason to keep going. Be it a nice old lady with a big yellow digger offering us an array of treats such as water, home bakes, eggs, a shower and a donation, or whether it was a quick coffee with a local madman, or a moral boosting meal in a bar full of crazy (and generous) but crazy, locals.

I suppose from random acts of kindness be it from strangers offering us a bed for the night or something to eat, or whether it was planned from people we knew such as family & friends making the effort to deliver us some home bakes, give us a warm bed, wash our kit, or even arrange some sports therapy, one of the main factors that we enjoyed most about the run was the support we received along the way.

I mean how often in life are you running roadside in the pouring rain when a car pulls over and offers you a bed in a church hall for the night? Or a couple you’ve never met greet you in a very wet car park and offer you a fantastic array of iced cakes and hot drinks? These acts of kindness not only gave us a massive boost on tough days but they’re something that will stay with us for a long time!

Then of course there was the scenery, the beaches and the remoteness of Caithness & Sutherland, an ice bath in river Forss with salmon jumping around us, the woodland trail above Loch Ness, and the numerous vantage points along the west highland way. I suppose even the long monotonous run down the Great Glen had the bonus of reaching the clear water of Loch Lochy with its surrounding mountains, Nevis views, and almost eerie fairy forest.


So yes, we enjoyed it. Even on day 9 when we were all pushing ourselves through pain barriers that we’d never experienced before and had to endure long lonely stages without any public support we took a lot of motivation from having Mark ignoring medical advice and back running with us, and as a team we made every effort to keep our morale high by laughing, and over our 10 day adventure we laughed a lot.


Overall we owe a lot of thanks to our two support drivers Ronnie Malony and Stephen Milne for the taking time out to share the adventure with us and also to TACC for the support and encouragement that we received throughout the event and hope that the exposure we generated inspires others to get involved with this fantastic charity and further the amazing work that TACC are already doing!"




Thanks lads and well done on this fantastic achievement! You have really inspired us and many others with your epic run, you absolutely embody TACC's belief that ordinary people can do extraordinary things and also help improve the lives of disadvantaged children.

TACC Ambassador Info Print E-mail


So, you may be wondering, what exactly is a TACC Ambassador? What does it involve? Can I do it?

Well, wonder no more folks. Below is a brief overview of the role of a TACC Ambassador.

Our new TACC Ambassadors project will allow us to work even closer with, you, our supporters so that together we can go on and do great things for disadvantaged children at home in Scotland and in the countries where the national team play.


The program  will help us connect to, and work with, key sections of our business, supporters and geographical communities. Your experience and expertise in your own community will help drive the charity forward in creating a brighter future for children.

Becoming a TACC ambassador requires nothing more than the enthusiasm and desire to make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in Scotland and beyond.



What’s involved?

The role varies according to your location and is flexible to take account of what you are happy to and/or are able to do; so you could be involved in all, or just some, of the following activities:


• Distributing promotional leaflets

• Supporting TACC’s involvement in national eventsJimHart

• Recruiting supporters and volunteers for the Charity

• Providing general support to the Charity when required

What are the goals of the TACC Ambassador Project?

To increase awareness and knowledge of TACC and to expand the reach of TACC to benefit children in more communities in Scotland and beyond.


How much time is involved?

As much or as little time as you can spare, the major aspect of this role is to get the message out, promote the charity and to be enthusiastic.

What are the benefits to me of becoming a TACC Ambassador?

You will be making a real difference to the lives of children in your local community, Scotland and overseas. You will get to meet new and inspiring people and be able to add details of your voluntary experience to your CV.


What support will I receive?

As a TACC Ambassador, you will be fully supported by the TACC trustees. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet fellow volunteers, and we’ll provide you with information about how you can become involved with the Charity in other ways should you wish to.


We just hope to inspire people to get out and do something a bit different, really challenge themselves and see what their capable of.” Jog 4 Hampden, 2012.
