CHARITY INFORMATION

Funds raised through the Football Aid Scotland Internationals at Hampden are split between our sponsors BT Scotland and the SFA.

BT Scotland’s nominated is ChildLine and since 2004, they have received £18,000 from Field of Dreams. The funds have been used to train volunteer telephone counsellors to take calls from children and young people in distress or need and also been put towards face to face work on a ‘Boys Allowed’ project. The ‘Boys Allowed’ project aims to work with groups of boys and young men to develop strategies to reach out to more boys and encourage service use and increase the male volunteers at ChildLine Scotland.

Zoey Hillman, Senior Fundraiser recently got in touch to thank Football Aid and Field of Dreams for the donations. “I would like to express my sincere thanks to everyone at Field of Dreams for the grants awarded to ChildLine Scotland. Every day, 725 children and young people in Scotland try to call ChildLine but currently lack of funds means that only around half of these calls can be answered. That is why your support means so much to us. This donation will mean that ChildLine can answer more calls, but specifically, reach out to more boys across Scotland and encourage more of them to use ChildLine’s vital and unique service.”

In 2005, the SFA nominated 6 regional community projects to receive donations from Field of Dreams including the Moray Youth Development League, South East Girls Football League and the Highland Perthshire Sports Trust. While as a result of the 2006 Internationals, the Children's Hospice Association Scotland and Diabetes Scotland will each be receiving £1,550 - full details on these awards will follow shortly.
