TACC Overseas Donation - Lithuania April 14th 2018




TACC did not make our usual away donation in Lithuania last September as we struggled to find a suitable charity. However, while visiting Vilnius to watch our boys secure a good win we found an ideal charity (Padek Gatves Vaikams) which helps street kids/orphans with various issues via organised football events and coaching. TACC donated 5000 euros to this charity and some of that money was used for a Spring Football Tournament which was held yesterday in a Vilnius suburb. 5 teams from all parts of Lithuania played in a round-robin event and it was very successful, the kids had a great time and everybody got a medal and a gift. The event was covered by local media, there were local celebrities from TV/Radio present and the LIthuania National Manager attended and played also (which made the day for a lot of the kids). The British Emabssy also sent a representative to help with translation (thank you Mida). The local charity were very grateful for TACC's donation and the founder (Gediminas Tvarijonas) asked me to pass on his thanks to all of TACC's supporters who make donations like this possible.
