T.E.A.M Project – Amazing surprise for the launch of Hearts’ new kit!
This afternoon our T.E.A.M Project with Multi-Cultural Family Base got the chance to be involved in the launch of Heart of Midlothian’s brand new 2018/19 home kit!
The young people received a surprise visit from Hearts’ players Arnaud Djoum and Euan Henderson and were offered a new Hearts’ Kit from the Club and their shirt sponsor Save the Children.
Craig Wilson, General Manager of Big Hearts commented: “Today was a very special day for the young people involved in our T.E.A.M Project as they were the very first to receive the new Hearts kit handed by members of the Hearts’ squad. Getting the chance to kick a ball with Hearts players and taking their brand new football kit home is fantastic and illustrates our close relation with the Club as we look to improve the lives of families affected by, or at risk of, social isolation.”
T.E.A.M – for Together Equality Achieves More – aims to improve the emotional wellbeing and increase social connections of young people attending the local schools, with a set of activities hosted every Thursday at Tynecastle Park. Click here to find out more about the T.E.A.M Project
Anne Spiers, Deputy CEO of Multi-Cultural Family Base said: “At MCFB we are committed to ideals of inclusiveness in all aspects of children’s lives. Our partnership with Big Hearts extends this work by bringing children together, removing barriers to participation and promoting activity, fun and collective T.E.A.M identity. We are delighted with the results of the project which chime with the outcomes and focus of our Groupwork at MCFB. The new Hearts’ kit is the icing on the cake for the children! We are delighted at this gesture!”
This afternoon’s lovely surprise comes as Heart of Midlothian FC announced earlier today the extension of their unique partnership with Save the Children. Since 2015 the charity features on both the home and away kits of the Club, thanks to generous benefactors willing to support the Club’s values and ethos of community.
Craig Wilson added: “We are delighted to see the successful partnership between Heart of Midlothian and Save the Children, which has clear benefits for our charity, being extended for another three years. Big Hearts is very proud to be associated with this groundbreaking initiative and we are looking forward to continuing our collective work supporting families in need within our community.“
