Collection for Winter Warmth Appeal

6 November 2013

Bradford City is asking its supporters to help the football's club Community Foundation with a charity collection project.

The Bantams would like fans to donate any unused winter clothes and other suitable items they might have to go towards Bradford Council's Winter Warmth Appeal.

Bradford City Community Foundation - the community arm of the football club - currently delivers a programme in association with the National Citizen Service.

The National Citizen Service is a organisation that allows 16 to 17 year-olds the chance to make a difference in the local community and also learn new skills and enjoy new experiences.

As part of the Community Foundation's involvement with the National Citizen Service, youngsters in this year's group will be collecting for the Winter Warmth Appeal.

The Winter Warmth Appeal is in place to try and help look after particularly vulnerable groups, such as the elderly, over the winter months.

The club will be holding a collection point for fans to drop off any unwanted clothes a week on Sunday (17 November 2013) ahead of City's televised home fixture with Coventry City.

The collection point will be at the Community Foundation class room at the Coral Windows Stadium. This is situated just to the right of the Bantams Club Shop. It will be open to take supporters' donated items from 1:00pm to 3:00pm on the day of the Coventry match.

Some suggested items include:

  • Hand-knitted hats (men, ladies, childrens)
  • Gloves (mens, ladies and childrens)
  • New single duvets
  •  Toiletries (Mens and ladies)
  •  Hot water bottles
  •  Small thermos flasks
  •  Cans of (good) soup, beans, rice pudding etc
  •  Mens medium to large jumpers
  •  New socks (mens, ladies and children)
  •  New underpants/underwear (mens and ladies)
