Musselburgh Windsor Football Club – Diamond Jubilee Celebrations
Charity Match: Musselburgh Windsor Select v Hearts Legends
NEW DATE TBC
On Sunday 8th June the last of the Musselburgh Windsor FC Diamond Jubilee Celebration events will take place, when a Musselburgh Windsor select, comprising of current and former coaches,
and former players take on the Hearts Legends at Pinkie St Peters Playing Fields. As well as bringing the Diamond Jubilee celebrations to a close, the objective of this day is to raise funds for the
Club and two other charity organisations: the Big Hearts Community Trust, and the Jordan Houston Trust.
A bit about the other organisations that will benefit from the game
Big Hearts Community Trust is the club’s main vehicle for investing in community development projects. It is an independent charity and its role is to support the work of
local people towards building communities where people of all ages can live, work and participate in sport safely, where they welcome each other’s differences and help each other to grow and succeed.
The Big Hearts is built on three main pillars of activity: Communities, Grassroots and Legacy.
The Jordan Houston Trust was established in 2012, and is a charity set up to help children suffering from cancer & their families, in memory of a young boy Jordan
Houston, who passed away from a Diffuse Pontine Glioma (rare brain tumour), in July 2011, aged just 11 years old. Previously Jordan had been a fit & healthy football FANATIC, he was a popular boy
who loved playing for his football team Musselburgh Windsor, playing the position of defender. Jordan was at his happiest with a football at his feet. Jordan was diagnosed with a DPG in August 2010
and tragically passed away less than 12 months later.
