‘Saffron Rose 4 Rett Charitable Trust’

Facebook Page

And just like that, in the 21st year of the Sunshine Appeal, YOUR 100th consecutive donation is confirmed!

In keeping with the constitution, they are a charity who deliver their services in Gibraltar, the country we are playing (Albeit in Faro!).

The Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal are delighted to share that our 100th donation will be made to ‘Saffron Rose 4 Rett Charitable Trust’ who were set up by 6 volunteers, to raise awareness of the debilitating illness, Rett Syndrome, which some of their children suffer from.

They have since expanded and offer assistance to any child who has any type of debilitating illness, as Rett Syndrome is so rare and there are very few children in the town who suffer from it.

They intend to use the donation to supply the following:

Bed changing facilities within the toilets and various sensory equipment and wheelchair accessible items such as planters etc. so that children with special needs will be able to enjoy this green ‘educational zone’ – The Alameda – Gibraltar Botanical Gardens.

The presentation will be made by our Chairman Neil Forbes, who’s travelling to Gibraltar along with his pal Arne Albertson, who’ve then to plot their route to Faro same day!

If you can/wish to attend, please get in contact with us, as we appreciate its not the easiest place to get to, when the game is in another country.

As the Sunshine Appeal is a reflection of you, our supporters, we’ve made a decision to make this one, the 101st, as accessible as possible – keep an eye on our announcement in the coming week or so!
