On the morning of 7th July (Tuesday) at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Glasgow, the Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal handed over six “chemo ducks” to Sister Jean Kirkwood, the Ward Manager.
The “chemo ducks” were a gift to the hospital from Aoibheaan’s Pink Tie, a children’s cancer charity in Dublin who themselves were the recipients of a £5000/€7000 donation from the Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal when the Scots were over in Ireland for the Euro Qualifier match in June.
Sister Kirkwood said, “We are extremely grateful to Aoibheann’s Pink Tie for this gift. It’s true that concern for children fighting cancer knows no boundaries and it’s great to see football being used as a vehicle to bring fans of countries together in this wonderful cause. Whilst we will be continuing to use our own “chemo cows”, these were a very welcome one-off gift from Ireland”.
