It will form part of Big Hearts Day 2021 as the charity recognising its achievements in the communities around Tynecastle Park and further afield.

It will be the fifth time it is held, albeit this year will be markedly different due to the pandemic.

The charity does valuable work in Gorgie and around Edinburgh, especially across the past 12 months, helping individuals and families at risk of poverty, social isolation and poor mental health.

Between March and December more than 8,000 people were supported through a range of programmes Big Hearts provided.

As well as the specially embroidered strip, Big Hearts will be part of Hearts TV coverage starting at 2.15pm.

Craig Wilson, the charity's general manager, said: “Our successful partnership with the club is based on strong family values and a proud record of community engagement. We are excited to see the first team players show their support on the pitch for the very first time this Saturday, on what will be our fifth annual Big Hearts Day at Tynecastle Park.”

“At Big Hearts we believe in the power of football to change lives. Every week, hundreds of Hearts’ fans volunteer with our charity to support families most in need. We see this kind gesture from Heart of Midlothian FC as a tribute to their continued effort, particularly during the incredibly challenging past 12 months. A big thank you to all who have helped make this happen.”
