Young Hearts superfan raises more money for Foundation of Hearts after carrying out household chores



A teenage Hearts fan has raised a staggering £600 for the Foundation of Hearts – just months after handing over £900.

Alloa-based Daniel Morrison saved up the money after carrying out household chores.

And dad Alan – a FoH pledger – has matched what the 14-year-old donated, just like he did back in October.

Alan said: “Daniel has pledged another £650 from pocket money doing chores around the house and I have matched what he’s put in.

“He’s been doing things like carry wood as we’ve got wood burners in the house, and painting iron gates. He’s done a lot of chores.

“We’ve made sure he keeps some of the money for himself, though – his main love is his Xbox.

“Part of the reason that Daniel wanted to donate more money was because of the building of the main stand and he is planning to put another £150 in by October.

“It’s very exciting times at the club at the moment and I have total faith in Ann Budge and everything she is doing there. We know the fans’ money is going to be well spent.”

Aspiring goalkeeper Daniel will take part in a cup final on Saturday for his local side and Alan has revealed his son has been grateful for words of advice – and a pair of gloves – from Jack Hamilton after meeting the Hearts goalie at a fans’ event.

Alan added: “Daniel met Jack at one of the Foundation of Hearts virtual plot ceremonies and Jack was absolutely fantastic with Daniel.

“I e-mailed Ann’s secretary to thank Jack for taking the time to speak to Daniel and I believe the e-mail was passed on to Jack.

“Jack even went away and got Daniel a pair of his gloves. I’ve got a lot of time for him.”

Foundation of Hearts chairman Brian Cormack said: “On behalf of the Foundation of Hearts, I would like to thank both Alan and Daniel (both pictured) for their incredible contributions. Daniel’s desire to raise money for the club is fantastic and hugely appreciated by everyone at both the Foundation and Hearts and the club.

“We’re honoured to have both the support of Alan and Daniel, their contributions are indicative of the backing given by the entire fan base as we continue the journey towards fan ownership.”
