UPDATE ON THE RESULT OF THE MATCH: PERU 2-SCOTLAND 0

In the context of this match we were delighted to be supported by the Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal. To read some of their story see:

The Tartan Army were in Lima for the match. On the morning of the game a group from the Tartan Army visited the refuge, presented the children and staff with Scotland supporters' 'polo' shirts, played a football match against the boys, were entertained to a display of dance and music by the children, enjoyed a 'Pachamanca', a traditional Peruvian feast cooked in the ground, and made us a generous donation.

'Performance put on for us by the kids in the refuge today was another humbling experience...delighted we could donate to Project Peru, a fantastic charity...'

'Morning of the game, visited Project Peru with the Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal [TASA]...thanks so much for allowing us to come along...had an ace time...'

"What a fantastic job being done by everyone at Project Peru. Proud that we can help in a small way. Thanks to everyone for coming along.'

'Fed, watered and entertained by the kids at Project Peru...plus a game of Auld Gits v Young Kids'.

'Peru you have been incredible, Lima is an amazing place'

Background:
 
The Scotland v Peru match -in the Estadio Nacional, Lima on May 29th- served as the host's send off before they left for the FIFA World Cup finals in Russia in June and July.

Peru have qualified for their first World Cup in 36 years, 40 years after their clash in Argentina in 1978 where Scotland were beaten 3-1.

Scotland have played at eight FIFA World Cups, including five consecutive tournaments from 1974 to 1990. Not this time though.

Hovever, the record between the two teams was delicately poised before this 'friendly' match: in the three fixtures previously played since their first meeting in 1972 each side had won once, with one draw.

Project Peru delivers the goods

 As well as providing for our children's refuge, which is our core activity, we try as far as possible to work in the wider community. We are able to distribute some of the donated goods from our annual cargo from the UK among communities in the high Sierra that suffer from extreme winter temperatures due to the altitude. We were able to distribute warm blankets, other knitted goods and warm clothing as well as zimmer frames in a community in the north of the Ayacucho region and in the city of Ayacucho itself.
