For the 2022/23 season, we have launched a unique and vibrant charity third kit to promote local Nairn charity TeamHamish.
After fundraising to build Hamish’s Splashpad at Nairn Links, TeamHamish has now entered phase two, where their focus is on the area of the Links currently occupied by the putting, crazy mini golf and the adjacent banking and grassed areas.
To aid their fundraising efforts and help shine more light on the magnificent work done by the charity, we have designed and produced a special TeamHamish football strip that they will use during the 2022/23 season.
The shirt is inspired by Hamish’s Splashpad at the Links and a colourful chevron design of Sam’s wife, Susan’s favourite dress.
We will be donating £10 from every sale of an adult shirt and £5 from the sale of a kid’s shirt to TeamHamish.
In addition, the club will be dedicating a home league match to fundraising for the phase two project. This will include kids’ activities and special fundraising activities.
Mark Kelman, Nairn County Chairman, said: “We are extremely excited and proud to be launching a special TeamHamish shirt for the season ahead.
As a club we are committed to supporting the local Nairn community and to be able to launch our first ever charity third kit and for it to support TeamHamish is something very special for us.
Their plans for the putting green area of the Links are brilliant and we want to help in whatever way we can.”
Sam Hey of TeamHamish, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Nairn County have chosen to support TeamHamish during the upcoming season.
Working in partnership with the community of Nairn is one of our fundamental principles, and this is particularly important as we develop our Phase Two proposals.
We were truly amazed when we were presented with the idea for the TeamHamish shirt. The bright, colourful, and very distinctive design inspiration really is such a fitting tribute to never forgotten Hamish and Susan.”
Shirts will be on sale in person for the first-time during the Nairn Highland Games where the club has a stall and are also available online now.
TeamHamish is a Nairn charity set up by Sam and Susan Hey to create a legacy for their son Hamish who sadly passed away in 2017 aged just eight years old. The first phase was the creation of Hamish’s Splashpad down at the Links in Nairn. Unfortunately, Hamish’s mother, Susan lost her own battle with cancer before it was officially opened. TeamHamish are now progressing with phase two which is to redevelop the area of the Links currently occupied by the putting, crazy golf and adjacent banking and grassed areas.
