Dagger Is Back

Received this today from Granton PS

 

23rd January 2020

 

Dear Sir,

 

Thank you very much for donating your tickets to me. I had a great time and went with my Mum and my big sister.

I have never been to a football match before and have been a Hearts fan all my life, so you can probably understand that this was a BIG event for me!

I sometimes find new places quite tricky and I didn’t know how I would be with all the noise, but I had a great time and my Mum says that we will definitely go again.

 

I got a new Hearts scarf, you can see it in one of the photos and we had a snack at the match.

 

My best bit was when Steven Naismith scored, he’s the best player. I also loved it because we, Hearts, won the match. My sister couldn’t sit down and we were all shouting!

 

Thank you

 

From

 

Rhys

This was a wee thank you email received today from Dalry PS

 

By way of Introductions, I am X dad. Thanks a ton for giving the match tickets (season pass) and I must admit it was a great experience for X and myself. It was my first game watching Hearts in action and we had a great day (albeit the wet weather). The best part was the view from the seats and the buzz experience with singing from the home fans. The match was great as well with Hearts coming back from being 2 goals down and then eventually earning a well-deserved draw.

 

Thanks a lot once again and in case they are no takers for the next matches, please consider us for a second chance 😊 We would love to do this again and root for the home team.

 

Go Hearts Go !!!!!!

Massive thanks again to Rudolf who has just renewed three pairs of STs for the year ahead.

 

These tickets will be used by pupils at Brunstane PS and Gilmerton PS. 

 

Thanks so much Rudolf. I know how much of a positive impact your kindness makes

I received this today from the HT at Gilmerton PS, following on from Rudolfs kind donation

 

On behalf of our Gilmerton learners and their families, I would just like to say a huge ‘Thank you’ for your generous gift of renewing the Hearts season tickets for next session.

 

For you to think of us during this time of great uncertainty is most thoughtful and we know that when we welcome our pupils back to school in August we will have some lovely news to share with them.  Your act of kindness will help to show our children that people across Edinburgh, across our city, care for them. 

 

In previous years our children and their families have appreciated your generous gift and we usually tweet when they attend the football games.  You are welcome to follow us @GilmertonPS if you wish to and we will share with our community when our children cheer the Hearts team on!

 

Kindness is one of the most important values we have in our school and we just want to thank you again for sharing your kindness with us – we greatly appreciate this.

 

Yours sincerely,
Rebecca Annand, Head Teacher, Gilmerton Primary School

Dagger, I've made the odd contribution of match tickets over the last few years, although personal circumstances mean that I've not been able to do so more recently.  My personal circumstances have now improved somewhat, and I feel like I would like to take things a stage further and donate an adult and child season ticket for the coming season.  How would I go about doing that?

Hey Robnox, your support has been much appreciated. We're moving in to year 8 of this wee initiative thanks to folks like you.

 

Glad things have improved for you and if you're in a position to donate we're very happy to help

 

What you need to do is order the tickets, I can then pick them up from the TO,  they'll put them in an envelope marked for me, Paul Rendall, and then I'll get them to a school of your choice. 

 

Happy to chat via pm to sort it all out

 

Cheers

Thanks Paul.  I've just emailed the ticket office to get things moving, as it looks like I can't just order online unless I'm renewing my own ST.  I'm looking to purchase a gold ST for an adult and U13.

 

I'm really happy to be in a position to support your initiative once again.  You've very kindly passed on letters of appreciation from the handful of kids who benefited from my occasional previous donations, via their school teachers, and it is a quite humbling experience.  One letter in particular moved me to tears, which is not something that happens too often to a stoic old guy like me.  I managed to hold it together at Dens Park in 1986, although even I succumbed to my emotions on that day in May 1998 when I finally saw my team win a trophy.

 

I will be in touch in due course once I get things sorted out with the ticket office.

That's brilliant thank you. 

 

The feedback is brilliant isn't it? This all started as a means of getting funds into the club but as it's grown, it's also got the added benefit of allowing parents to take their kids to a game when they might not have that opportunity. If we can create some new Jambos along the way that will be future ST holders and FOH members then we've hit the jackpot.

 

We take going to games for granted - for some of these families it's way way bigger than a game of football

 

Thanks again

I agree, I always think of it as a way of encouraging new Jambos, as the thread title suggests.  The letter that really got me was from a little girl who had been awarded tickets and took her mum to a game as a birthday treat, the first time they had been to Tynie together, and she was so happy that her mum appreciated it so much.  It's those little things that make you appreciate that what might not seem like a big deal to yourself actually touches on other people's lives in a way that you wouldn't consider, as I said previously , it's quite humbling. 

 

Just one question, when I buy the season tickets, do I just do that in my own name?  I've only ever donated individual match tickets previously, just conscious that my name would appear on any season tickets I buy, so wondering if there would be any issue with people other than me using STs in my name.  I know from looking at this thread that you get a few ST donations, I presume it's no problem but just want to make sure.

 

I'll be waiting until towards the end of the month when I get my next pension payment before making the purchase. As a retired banker, I understand the importance of cashflow management!

Spent my career working for banks and other financial institutions so have the same financial OCD, as my wife calls it.

Yip it is very humbling you’re right. No issue at all with the cards being in your name. The cards are just scanned these days and they’re transferable so all is good

 

Have you got a school in mind?

We received this today in response to neonjambos kind donation to Balgreen PS

 

I would like to thank you for your kind donation of two pairs of season tickets for the use of pupils and their families in our school. Your kind gift will allow families the opportunity to spend quality time together, a very welcome commodity in these strange times.

 

COVID lockdown has impacted on our community in many different ways. We are increasingly aware of the poverty families are finding themselves in as a result of furlough, unemployment, redundancies, food poverty and the impact of zero hours contracts where income is variable week on week. The pressure on families has never been greater and it is often luxuries that are first to be cut when times are hard.

 

While we endeavour to do our best with the resources we have to hand, we are unable to reach all the families. Kind benefactors like you allow us to support families in ways that engage them, help us build positive relationships with them that build goodwill and help develop empathy, trust and respect.

 

One of the highlights of my week last session was contacting families and offering them the tickets provided by yourself and I look forward to doing so again once crowds are allowed back at Tynecastle. Pre-season has gone well and there have been some exciting signings and I have high hopes for this season.

 

Thanks again,

Richard Napier

This makes me so proud to be a Jambo, in all honesty. Well done to everyone who has donated match and season tickets. You should be really proud of yourselves. Hopefully I'll be back working when crowds are allowed back and, if i can afford it, i will donate some match tickets myself. 

Once again, well done to everyone involved. ♥ ♥

Fair play to you for the kind words, but thanks also to DiB for keeping the connections to the schools going.  I'm also aware that my own contribution wouldn't work without the support a couple of very busy staff members in Dalry PS - and I'd guess it's the same story in Clovenstone and Broomhouse.  No names here, but DiB knows who they are and thanks to them for their help.

You're spot on re the school staff Uly. It would be so easy given how busy they are, to say no thanks but nothings too much trouble for them, and they put kids front and centre. 11 years and counting Jambos
