TACC Overseas Donation - Malta September 3rd 2016

Ladybird Foundation


At Scotland's first game of the World Cup 2018 campaign in Malta, the Tartan Army Children's Charity (TACC) were delighted to present the Ladybird Foundation with a cheque for 5,942 Euros.  The Ladybird Foundation gives children who are terminally, critically or seriously ill the opportunity to go on a dream trip with their families, sadly sometimes their last opportunity to do this.  Ladybird said "We would like to thank the TARTAN ARMY CHILDREN'S CHARITY (TACC) for donating the generous sum of EUR 5,942.  The funds will be used to send Gilbert and his family to Munich to watch his favourite team Bayern Munich play in the Bundesliga on September 16th.  Gilbert received a kidney transplant in 2008 which has now started to fail.  He is currently undergoing treatment and will soon be operated again.  THANK YOU to all the Scottish fans, it's no wonder that you are renowned as being amongst the best fans in the world."


TACC very much appreciates the awesome Tartan Army Select Football Team for allowing us to attend their match to make the presentation.  Unfortunately they lost their match but they were playing in incredible heat and the opposition included some former Malta national team players.  As usual they left a great impression of Scotland fans on their hosts - we call that winning!  To top it all off Scotland won 5-1 and are top of the group - lets enjoy that!!!  Thanks to everyone involved!
