For this fundraiser we will be supporting Marie Curie’s hospice in Edinburgh, where they provide support for people living with any terminal illness and their families, including 24/7 expert palliative care, as well as offering services to visitors. Marie Curie is one of the most recognised British charities in cancer care and has been carrying out this essential work for over 65 years!
Their services are vital to many people in the UK and their families. Last year alone they cared for over 40,000 people across the UK!
Payatas FC began in 2011 with 80 kids playing barefoot on a basketball court. Now the team has several players invited to the National Youth Team. The players are amongst the poorest children in the country and due to malnourishment are sometimes only half the size of their opponents. Yet they are very successful because of their heart and determination. Three of the girls were part of Team Philippines in the Street Child World Cup, held in Brazil 2014, where they won the silver medal!
year, they have big plans for 2016, building their Sports Centre and Fairplay
Academy while expanding on their social enterprises.
So if you’re in Edinburgh please come along tomorrow night and support these amazing charities and have a bit of fun! Tickets are available to buy on the door.We hope to see you all there!!
