Charity coffee morning this Friday

27 September 2013

The Bantams are inviting City supporters and members of the wider community to join them as they host their first 'World’s Biggest Coffee Morning' today (Friday 27th September) from 11:00am – 3:00pm in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

 

The event, which will take place within the Bantams Bar at the Coral Windows Stadium, has been organised by City kit man John (Graham) Duckworth.


The coffee morning at Valley Parade will be one of number different events being staged around the county this Friday to raise funds and awareness for Macmillan. This Saturday's opponents for City in Sky Bet League 1, Shrewsbury Town, are also hosting a coffee morning on Friday.


Supporters can also make their own contribution to Macmillan throughout this week via small donation boxes positioned inside the club's main reception and club shop at the Coral Windows Stadium.


After helping to raise thousands of pounds in recent years for the Bradford Burns Unit through his Bantamstrek group, John is now aiming to continue his admirable work for charity in the hope of raising vital funds for Macmillan, which will help support people living with, or affected by cancer in Bradford.

 

John and the team are inviting members of the public to attend the event to enjoy coffee and cake together, with members of Phil Parkinson's squad, including skipper Gary Jones, confirmed to attend at some point to support this worthwhile cause. All the money raised from the event will enable the charity to continue to make a difference to people living with cancer within the Bradford area.


On top of the coffee and cakes that will be available, there will be a prize raffle taking place which will allow supporters to bid for some notable pieces of memorabilia.


One of the items up for grabs will be a signed pair of boots from City striker Nahki Wells.



Bantams fans will also be able to purchase signed prints of Nahki (as seen above) taken by photographer Claire Epton while in action this season at the Coral Windows Stadium.
