    ***Kicks for Kids Season Ticket Fundraiser Season 2018-19*** 101 tickets bought.

    GM 3.jpg GM 6.jpg

    Above are some of pictures received from Gorgie Mills school, thanking everyone who donated towards the Kicks for Kids season tickets they receive via Leith Links.

    For those who don't know, Leith Links was formed in 2013 to collect donations so Kicks for Kids season tickets (KfK STs) can be purchased and allocated to children's groups and clubs. Since then, over £64,000 has been donated by our wonderful support and 777 KfK STs have been purchased meaning many more children - who wouldn't normally be able to go to games - have attended Easter Road and joined our family

    It's now time for the upcoming season's fundraiser and if you would like to contribute - and no matter how small the donation is - it will be gratefully received. Payment can be made on a one-off basis by PayPal (leithlinks@live.co.uk), bank transfer, cheque or if you are able, by monthly Standing Order or Direct Debit. For example, £6.25 per month will purchase one Kicks for Kids season ticket outright but any amount is welcome.

    Please PM me or email
    leithlinks@live.co.uk for more details and contributors can also nominate specific *groups who they think would benefit from tickets and Hibs will contact them.

    There are many people I would like to thank for their support as this wonderful story would be nothing without our fans, including those who have donated already, including:


    • All the fans who donate by either Direct Debit/Standing Order or make one-off payments
    • Since1875
    • Hibernian Shareholders Association (now closed)
    • St. Patrick's branch of the Hibernian Supporters Association


    Thanks to the above, over £6,000 has been received already which equals 101 KfK STs


    Also, to everyone who has provided assistance, items for auction, financial backing or words of encouragement - I am extremely grateful. Thanks to everyone on hibs.net also for allowing the fundraisers, (plus these threads ) and for continually backing the cause GGTTH.


    After a meeting with Hibs a couple of months ago, I was advised that there would be be a limit on the number of KfK STs that can be purchased this season and therefore, we are aiming for a maximum of 150 tickets. If additional funds are received, the donations could be used for next year's fundraiser/one-off match tickets or Hibs scarves etc but I will keep everyone updated of how near (or far!) we are from that number and take it from there.



    *Thank you letters from the charities and groups who have previously received KfK tickets can be found here: https://leithlinks4kids.com/social-media/feedback/

    Brilliant work well done. I'm sure we'll get enough for the full 150. Must be fantastic for those kids.

    Admins: please can you add the 80 tickets already donated towards to the title please? Normally I would add those purchased outright by .netters but given the cap on numbers, I think it's better that people can see how near (or far ) we are from 150 Also, most are from the kind posters on here anyway so it makes sense Thank you!

    I've updated the post - you want it in the title?
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    I'm aiming to purchase the tickets next week - to allow Hibs time to allocate them before the first home game - so IF you'd like to contribute, now is the time
