The club are delighted to announce our continued partnership with Friends of Chernobyl’s Children Forth Valley. Over the last three years club have forged strong partnership with this fantastic charity and are delighted to announce further plans for 2020.

The kids visited previously and enjoyed meeting players and coaching session. Club have also donated numerous items for charity to take to over to Belarus.

Friends of Chernobyl’s Children (Forth Valley) provide a month of love and care each year to children affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. They are a completely voluntary organisation and every penny raised is used in their work with the children and providing for them.

10 children will be coming across in August 2020, and the club will be inviting them as VIP guests for a coaching session on the pitch as well as providing them with gifts from the club. They will also meet players and management and be treated to a few special events on the day of their visit, as well as hopefully getting them along to a game.

This Saturday (30th November) for our fixture against Stranraer there will be a charity collection to help support the fantastic work the charity are doing and the club would like to ask for volunteers to help assist in this pre-match.
