|A Family Christmas - Appeal 2014|
The Tartan Army Children’s Charity are again delighted to announce the continued partnership with Includem to bring a family Christmas some of Scotland’s most disadvantaged communities this Christmas.
The £10,000 donated by the TACC will be spent on improving Christmas for the vulnerable young people and families throughout Scotland who use Includem’s services. Includem provides 24/7 one-to-one support to some of Scotland's most vulnerable, high risk and challenging young people.
Most of us take for granted that we can spend some time with our families and enjoy the festive period our donation will ensure that families get a Christmas dinner, or an outing to the Christmas lights. A donation like this helps Includem to go the extra mile, giving young people a Christmas that they will never forget.
In 2013, the £10,000 donation funded Christmas experiences from Christmas dinners to outings and gifts - and much more. For some individuals and families, this was the first experience of its kind. There was even some funds left over to have a family fun day back in August this year which everyone enjoyed and meant that some fun could be had during the year as well and shows us that Includem continue to put the full donation to very good use.
At our Christmas party this year at Hampden Park on the 29th November Scotland manager, Gordon Strachan, kindly agreed to present the cheque to David Ferrier the Includem Partneship Development Manager. David was thrilled to accept the donation and to continue the partnership with TACC which has helped so many children since our first donation in 2012.
Hosted by Sheelagh McLaren from STV and entertainment provided once again by the mighty Torridon it was a fantastic evening and we raised in the region of £2000 towards the Christmas appeal, which is fantastic. We still need your help however to ensure that TACC can continue to help worthy organizations like Includem and bring some joy to children over this Christmas period.
We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.
