HOW TO SUPPORT BIG HEARTS
The 6th Big Hearts Day we will shine the spotlight on our Welcome Through Football project, which promotes social inclusion and access to education for refugees and asylum seekers.
We would be grateful for any donations; an online fundraiser is now live – Refugee Fundraiser
The money raised on the day will help support young refugees from all countries as they rebuild their lives in Edinburgh. In addition, we know that emergency action is most needed in Ukraine right now and that’s why a portion will be donated towards Lviv Stadium in Ukraine, now a shelter for displaced people.
