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”.
