Saturday at Tynecastle was our celebration of the incredible Foundation of Hearts and what a day it was
As part of the build up to the match I read the following and reprint it here for the benefit of those who requested it:
Folks, it is now almost five years since the dark days of 2014 when our home game against St Mirren was flagged up as being potentially the last match ever to be played at Tynecastle Park.
At that point the Foundation of Hearts emerged and offered fans here and around the world the opportunity to join what has gone on to become the most successful supporters’ initiative in British footballing history.
More than 10,000 Jambos, from every corner of the globe, have over these years pledged their financial support to the club and have so far raised an incredible £8.2 million for our club.
Today, on Foundation Day, we say a huge “thank you” to every single one of you.
Together we saved our club for future generations. Together we have written an outstanding chapter in this great club’s story. And together we will keep this amazing initiative moving forward on behalf of Heart of Midlothian Football Club.
Please, folks, if you’d like to join or increase your backing as we move ever closer to taking majority shareholding of our club, visit one of the pledge stations around the stadium today or the go to the FoH website, www.foundationofhearts.org
On behalf of us all here at Tynecastle Park, wherever you are in our maroon world, thank you for refusing to let our club die.
