With Rememerance Sunday just over a week away and as part of Bath City`s commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant in supporting the Armed Forces Community, admission to home games at Twerton Park will be at the concession price of £10 for military personnel with ID, starting from tomorrow`s fixture against Concord Rangers.
The Vanarama National League South clash will also see the a team of volunteers from the Royal British Legion at the ground to collect and sell poppies before, during and after the game.
Bath City chairman Paul Williams said: “As a community-owned club that aims to be at the very heart of life in our city, it’s an honour to be able to support two fine institutions in this way. The Royal British Legion has worked tirelessly over many years to support veterans and their families, and we’re delighted to give Bath City supporters an opportunity to do their bit to help the cause.
And through this new ongoing discount for members of the armed forces attending Bath City games, it’s a chance for the club to show in a small way its appreciation to those who put their lives on the line to serve our country.”
Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal coordinator for Bath, Helen Cooke, said: “It’s a real honour to be asked by Bath City FC to collect at one of their games again. We had six volunteers there with collection buckets last year, and they all really enjoyed it.
We know from that experience how generous Bath City supporters are, so we’re very grateful for their help with our appeal again this year.”
Captain John Ledgister of the 43 Signal Squadron, 39 Signal Regiment, added: “Bath City Football Club is leading the way in the city when it comes to supporting Her Majesty’s Forces and the Royal British Legion, with its positive attitude and drive for inclusion and generosity.”
