VP TO 'SPARKLE FOR AXL' AGAINST SALFORD

8 December 2023

Supporters are asked to join in and once again help the University of Bradford Stadium 'Sparkle for Axl' this weekend, when the Bantams host Salford City. 

Graham Alexander's men take on the Ammies in their final home fixture before Christmas tomorrow, with action to get underway from 3.00pm. 

Supporting the 'Sparkle for Axl' campaign, the match will be dedicated to Bradford Hospitals' Charity, as part of City's annual support of the organisation. 

It recognises the Sparkle for Axl appeal, which the club backs every year in its final home outing before Christmas. 

Axl Walker had a rare blood disorder and was a regular patient at Bradford Royal Infirmary before sadly passing away three days before his third birthday, in 2018.

Since then, Bradford Hospitals’ Charity - the official NHS charity partner of Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust - has raised money in his memory to ensure other young patients have access to toys to help distract them while they are in hospital.

Against Salford, the Bantams players will warm up in Bradford Hospitals' Charity t-shirts, before supporters are asked to light their mobile phone torches bright to help Valley Parade sparkle as the players take to the field shortly before 3.00pm. 

Representatives from the charity will also be present in and around the stadium on matchday, collecting donations in buckets, with supporters urged to give what they can to support the appeal. 

To make a donation to the appeal, CLICK HERE or text AXL - followed by your donation amount - to 70085.
