We are delighted to announce that several youngsters from Dnipro Kids will be making a special appearance at our final home match of the season.

The Hibees take on St Johnstone on the final day of the season; kick-off at 12 (noon) on Sunday 15 May, 2022.

Earlier this year, Hibs supporter and founder of the charity 'Dnipro Kids' Stevie Carr, played a key role in evacuating over 50 children out of Ukraine into safety.

Since fleeing Ukraine, the youngsters have travelled across the continent before safely arriving and starting new lives in Scotland.

The Club are delighted to welcome several of these children to Easter Road to watch our final match of the season.

Not only that, the children have been invited to play a special role in the day which includes helping with the delivery of the match ball and getting involved in some football festivities throughout the afternoon.

About the Charity

Spearheaded by Stevie Carr, the charity Dnipro Kids was first founded in 2005, following a UEFA Cup match between Hibernian and Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.

Stevie, along with a group of fellow Hibernian supporters, visited a local orphanage in the city, donating some clothes and money to the children. That was the start of the special charity, which has played an important role throughout the children's lives ever since.

Over the years, the charity has gone from strength to strength and has played a key part in the upbringing of the children in the orphanage. Whether it is organising Christmas parties, birthday events, excursions and days out for the children, the charity has been invested in helping the kids for many years.

This will be the second time that children from the Dnipro Kids charity will visit Easter Road on a special excursion.

Back in 2016, several of the children from the orphanage visited Easter Road to watch the Hibees draw 1-1 with Dundee United.

Fingers crossed the youngster can witness a win this time around!
