FIRST COFFEE MORNING A SUCCESS

26 September 2014

City staff, supporters and members of the wider community came together at the Coral Windows Stadium this Friday (26 September 2014) to take part in the first of two BantamsTrek coffee mornings over the next few days.

Held in the Bantams Bar in The Kop stand, helpers connected with BantamsTrek and the Friends of Bradford City were on hand to run various stalls and other fundraising events.

BantamsTrek is a fundraising group started by City kit man John Duckworth back in 2010.

City boss Phil Parkinson, along with players Filipe Morais, James Hanson and Stephen Darby, attended the event, which was held to help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Macmillan are encouraging people to hold a charity coffee morning this weekend as part of their 'World's Biggest Coffee Morning' fundraising and awareness project.

Supporters who ventured down to the Bantams Bar this Friday not only got the chance to sample some of the various products available on the fundraising stalls, they also got the opportunity to take on the assembled City players at the brand new FIFA15 computer game!

Parkinson said: "We are all so proud of the charitable work John does and the effort he puts in to help set up events like this. It is a shame we couldn't bring along more players today (Friday) with it being the day before a match.

"We know how important it is to support the local community around the club, however, so we wanted to make the effort today to back John and help a great cause."

The second coffee morning to be held by BantamsTrek and the Friends of Bradford City will take place at Highfield Hotel in Idle, Bradford on Sunday (29 September 2014) between the hours of 11:00am and 3:00pm.
