Ukraine Revisited Print E-mail
We are often told that our most important gift isn’t the money we donate, but the time we spend with children.
In Eastern Europe especially, children with disabilities get little official support and are often given up by their families who can’t afford to look after them.

When TACC and other Scotland fans take the time to visit these children, organising parties with bagpipes, playing with them and generally making them feel special, it can mean the world.

So we thought it would be good to go back to the school for blind and partially-sighted children in Kiev that we’d visited in 2006 – to see how the children are doing now and how we could help them again.

Trustees Ally Hunter and Alex Demianczuk travelled to Kiev* with a £5,000 grant, and another £5,000 that we’d arranged through another Trust.

TACC's South Africa Visit Print E-mail

Friday 11th June - Let us Grow, near Jo'Burg

 

letusgrow_3_250x167Well so far South Africa has been an amazing experience, from the excitement of the World Cup Finals to the inspirational children's projects we've been lucky enough to spend time with.


We were picked up from our guesthouse in Jo'burg at 9am by Sixolili and Joseph, staff at Oxfam and Let us Grow, for the 1 hour drive to Orange Farm. On the way we stopped at a sports shop to buy a sack of footballs - TACC's 30k grant had been transferred a few weeks earlier but we didn't want to turn up empty handed.

Craig Levein - TACC’s Patron Print E-mail

craig_levein_173x240The Tartan Army Children’s Charity is proud to announce that the Scotland national team coach, Craig Levein, has agreed to become Patron of the charity.


Craig, pictured presenting the TACC Inspiration Award to Sean before leading the team to victory over the Czech Republic, was the unanimous and, indeed, only choice and we are delighted that he has accepted our invitation.


"The Tartan Army Children's Charity are terrific ambassadors for Scotland across the world. The work that they have done in Ukraine, Georgia, Macedonia and now South Africa has made a positive and tangible impact to the lives of disadvantaged children.


“It is also important to recognise the work they do for children in Scotland. The squad and the coaching staff are behind them every step of the way, and we encourage all Scotland fans to support them in their efforts."
