TABLES

 

This year's TACC Dinner Dance was held on Saturday 27th October 2018 at the Principal Hotel Edinburgh George Street (formerly The George Hotel).

 

The fantastic sum of £4000 was raised to help TACC to support disadvantaged children in Scotland and overseas.

 

In addition, TACC donated £2500 to each of 4 local charities as follows:

 

1. Tweed Togs is an initiative run entirely by local volunteers in Tweeddale. They supply good quality, donated children's clothing, carefully packed in gift bags, to struggling local families.

 

2. Canongate Youth provides support, recreation and training opportunities for 5-25 year olds in the Edinburgh/Lothian Area to help them overcome barriers and secure a great future.

 

3. The Yard offers disabled children and young people, and their siblings, the chance to experience creative, adventurous indoor and outdoor play in a well supported environment.

 

4. Whispers & Light makes a difference to the lives of children and teens affected by a terminal cancer diagnosis and their families by supporting them through practical and emotional support.

The feedback TACC received - "What a night Frame Football Scotland had!  It has to be one of the best experiences to see your National Team at home in the impressive Hampden Stadium. Scotland won 2-0 and the rain stayed off! The Frame Footballers were delighted with their Scotland top and their Scotland flag and this whole night was only made possible by Tartan Army Children's Charity (TACC) whom we met up with before kick off.  It was great to see Mandy and Jim!  Once again, my biggest thanks go to them for making last night possible.  Nadine xx"
