BANTAMS DEDICATE SWINDON FIXTURE TO DARBY RIMMER MND FOUNDATION

2 October 2019

City's Sky Bet League Two fixture at home to Swindon Town will be dedicated to the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation. 

One of the club's official charity partners for the 2019/20 campaign, the organisation was set up by City legend Stephen Darby and close friend Chris Rimmer - following the former's diagnosis with motor neurone disease, last year. 

On top of the Bantams' pre-season friendly at home to Liverpool FC also being contested in aid of the Foundation, which raised more than £275,000, Saturday's 3.00pm clash will also be designed to raise funds and awareness for the charity. 

In a game contested between City, where Darby remains a household name, and Swindon - where the former full-back also served a loan spell in 2010 - the day is set to be one to remeber, for all involved. 

There will be bucket collectors in and around the Utilita Energy Stadium on the day of the game. 

The club urges supporters - where possible - to please make a donation to this fantastic cause, enabling us to #AttackMND, together!

On top of the Darby Rimmer MND Foundation, the club will also, this season, be continuing its proud partnership with Bradford's Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit (PSBRU). 

Chosen charities to partner the Bantams throughout the course of the season include Cancer Support Yorkshire, Airedale and Wharfedale Autism Resource (AWARE) and the Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. 

The club will also be backing Samaritans, the Justin Edinburgh 3 Foundation, Salvation Army and the Bradford City Community Foundation over the course of the campaign.
