Club Announces Two Charity Events

Wingate & Finchley FC have two exciting events for charity to announce in March and April: Firstly, the Club will be holding their annual Community Day at home to promotion chasing AFC Hornchurch on Saturday 29th March. The event is a fundraiser for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice based in Barnet - Noah's Ark Children's Hospice provides practical and emotional support to life-limited and life-threatened children and their families, within the communities of North London. In addition to a ‘pay what you want’ entry incentive on the day, a number of additional activities have been planned, including kids' coaching, penalty shootout competitions and a special fundraising raffle. As Community Manager Mike Bayly advised, the Blues are going to extra lengths to attract supporters on the day: “We’ve held open days for the last few seasons and this time wanted to focus on a truly local cause, involving local people. The Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice is a very important local organisation and one we are proud to raise money for. We will be sending out 10,000 fliers to local homes and businesses in the lead up to the event in the hope of maximising attendance and fundraising opportunities. We’ve run a pay what you want incentive on previous occasions and it’s proved really popular. Hopefully we can replicate this popularity again.” Secondly, a group of Wingate & Finchley FC supporters will forgo the usual methods of travel to their away fixture with Dulwich Hamlet on Saturday 5th April, by taking to the road and walking the 13 miles instead. The Blues are undertaking the walk as part of the ongoing fundraising campaign for the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice. Mike Bayly went on to say. “We held a walk a few years ago to Waltham Abbey FC which was a lot of fun, so it made sense to do something similar. We wanted to make the walk a reasonable challenge but not so excessive that younger or older supporters would be excluded. We already have a lot of people signed up to take part, including some who will be undertaking smaller legs of the journey, which is fantastic. Dulwich Hamlet FC have also allowed us hold a half time bucket collection at their ground, for which we are immensely grateful."
