HEARTS FIRST TEAM TO WEAR BIG HEARTS ON HOME SHIRTS THIS SATURDAY
On Saturday 27th March, Hearts’ first team players will be proudly wearing the Big Hearts Community Trust logo on their home shirts, a first in Heart of Midlothian’s history!
To mark Big Hearts Day 2021, our charity badge will feature alongside the Club crest during the Championship match against Queen of the South FC.
Big Hearts Day is the annual Hearts’ game recognising our achievements in the communities near Tynecastle Park and further afield.
We’re looking forward to seeing the first team players show their backing to Big Hearts and walk down the tunnel in our special home shirts!
Ahead of kick-off, we encourage Hearts fans to tune in on Hearts TV from 2:15pm to hear directly from a family we support and get to know a bit more about our work behind the scenes!
A fundraiser is set up for those willing to support us: text BIGHEARTS to 70085 to make a single donation of £5.
Supporters will also get the opportunity to lay hands on the matchday shirts, with all proceeds going to our charity. More details will follow.
Craig Wilson, General Manager at Big Hearts comments: “Our successful partnership with the Club is based on strong family values and a proud record of community engagement. We are excited to see the first team players show their support on the pitch for the very first time this Saturday, on what will be our 5th annual Big Hearts Day at Tynecastle Park.”
“At Big Hearts we believe in the power of football to change lives. Every week, hundreds of Hearts’ fans volunteer with our charity to support families most in need. We see this kind gesture from Heart of Midlothian FC as a tribute to their continued effort, particularly during the incredibly challenging past 12 months. A big thank you to all who have helped make this happen.”
