Sponsors help City to host fun day at St James ParkOnce again, Exeter City are proud to be able to play host to the children under the care of Bramble Ward at this weekend’s game against Morecambe, along with their parents and families.
The club would like to thank the extremely kind sponsors who have helped cover the costs of the day with enough left over to make a valuable donation to CLIC Sargent, the charity that the club stages which helps facilitate the event and which provides such caring and vital support for the families of children with cancer.
Bishops Printers, Heavitree Brewery, Allparts South West, Underhill Solicitors, Cardens Estate Agents and RGB Building Supplies have all provided most generous financial backing and Lloyds Kitchen in Exeter and First Great Western have both given very valuable and warmly received draw prizes to help add to the excitement of the day.
FGW are also providing an extra sweet treat for the children and Shauls Bakery have donated a birthday cake for Barnaby, who will be celebrating his 14th birthday at the club on the day. St Austell Brewery is providing soft drinks for everyone and the club’s own Football in the Community team will be setting up and running an interactive football game for the families.
There will be a magician – thank you Mr Magic for giving your services for free (that’s magic!) – and of course all the players will be dropping by to say hello to the guests, who will also be getting a behind-the-scenes guided tour of the stadium.
Any visitors to the match on Saturday who would like to donate to CLIC Sargent are welcome to call into the ground level Grecian Lounge and ask for either Bruce Henderson from the club or one of the CLIC Sargent staff on duty. Of course you can also donate online at www.clicsargent.org.uk/donate.
The club would like to record its sincere thanks to all the sponsors who have made this very important (and now annual) day possible. It means a huge amount – not just to the children themselves, but also to all the parents, brothers and sisters and extended family members, who all help to support the brave children through the tough ordeals they face.
