Chelmsford City are holding a Ladies’ Day on Saturday, 16th April 2016 for their home Vanarama National League South fixture against Gosport Borough
The Clarets are raising funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Care with all women and girls given free entry to the football match on the day and a chance to find out more about Breast Cancer Care and its vital work.
Breast Cancer Care is the only specialist UK-wide charity providing support to people with breast cancer. Their free services include; support over the phone with a nurse or someone who’s been there, welcoming online forums, reliable information and support groups. They’ll help people to live life with breast cancer and beyond.
There will be plenty going on to keep everyone entertained, with cocktails on offer for the ladies and any accompanying gentleman, as well as face painting for the kids, a cake stall, tombola, a photo booth and raffle, with first prize of a Greenwood Spa Day. The Chelmsford City FC Ladies’ Day will include an information stand with materials provided by Breast Cancer Care.
The Clarets have been given dispensation by the League to wear a special one-off pink kit adorning not only the club’s shirt sponsors logos but also the charity’s logo. There will be a charity auction after the match of the ‘pink’ kits the players will exclusively be wearing on the day, with all proceeds from the auction going to Breast Cancer Care.
City chairman Trevor Smith said: “We’re delighted to be supporting and highlighting such an important cause and make people aware of a charity that does such great work.”
Rebecca Woollgar, Community Fundraiser at Breast Cancer Care, said: “We are delighted that Chelmsford City FC is organising this event, the idea to hold a Ladies’ Day is a fantastic way to raise awareness of breast cancer. Every contribution makes a difference and funds raised will go towards ensuring that Breast Cancer Care can continue to offer vital care, support and information to women with breast cancer, their families and friends.”
