Big Hearts chairman Jim Panton has today written this open letter to supporters as the charity prepares for significant changes early in 2015, following on from last night’s biggest ever fundraiser held at Tynecastle.
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank supporters after last night’s Big Hearts Big Reunion. We were joined by 360 guests for a night of reminiscence about what we believe makes our club very special. It was a fantastic occasion, and it was terrific to meet so many of you.
It is heartening to be able to tell you that we raised in excess of £13,000 for Big Hearts, our club’s charity.
On behalf of the board of trustees I thank you for your generosity in the night, as we move towards a significant moment in Big Hearts’ history.
Now eight years’ old, Big Hearts has led the way in community strategy at football clubs in Scotland. Indeed half a dozen or so clubs have models which reflect Big Hearts’ approach.
Now is the time for change, and a change we can all be a part of.
