A group of Scotland football fans from the Thurso area have donated a total of £1100 to local charities following the postponement of the national team's Euro 2020 qualifier against Israel.

Members of Top Joes Tartan Army who had planned to travel to the game at Hampden Park chose to donate their bus fees instead of receiving a refund. Further donations were received from other local Scotland supporters.

Thurso Community Development Trust was given £700 towards hobby boxes containing sports and leisure equipment, with the remaining £400 going to Caithness Foodbank.

Top Joes play in the second division of the Caithness AFA summer league, which is currently suspended along with all other competitive football in Scotland.
