Hearts x Frightened Rabbit shirts raise nearly £60k for charity
Nearly £60,000 has been raised for charity Tiny Changes through sales of a Hearts, Frightened Rabbit and Bands FC shirt collaboration.
The Tynecastle club helped bring further attention to the charity when they wore the special tops during the warm-up of the Scottish Cup semi-final win over Hibs and then the final against Celtic.
Tiny Changes was founded in 2019 in memory of Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison who died in 2018 with the stated aim to “build a community, raise voices and inspire change that will transform young people’s mental health in Scotland”.
The singer, who performed the Hearts song at Tynecastle in 2017, was open about his mental health struggles prior to his death in 2018 and his family wanted something which would carry on after his passing, while raising awareness.
The shirts have proved hugely popular with Hearts fans and Frightened Rabbits.
With key rings, badges and raffles for match worn shirts, Bands FC believe the figure will have surpassed £60,000.
