Charity launches "12 Days of Free Kicks" ahead of special day on New Years Day.
Free Kicks Foundation and Peterborough United are delighted to announce that, as part of their Charity of the Year partnership, the home game against Doncaster Rovers on New Year’s Day has been designated Free Kicks Day.
The aim of Free Kicks Day is to raise funds and awareness of our charity and we have many exciting ideas and activities that we are putting into place ahead of the day. On Wednesday December 13th we will launch a '12 Days of Free Kicks' countdown where we will make a daily announcement of things that are planned and how all Posh fans can get involved.
Steve Thorpe from Free Kicks said "We are hugely grateful to Darragh and everybody at the club for making this happen; the support we have received from him, his staff and the players has been incredible and we appreciate everything they have done for us. We are looking forward to the day and hope to get as many people involved as possible, in order to make it as successful as possible. All money raised on the day will be used to arrange days out at football matches for local disadvantaged children".
Chairman Darragh MacAnthony added: “I have worked closely both personally and as chairman of the football club with the Free Kicks Foundation and have seen first-hand the impact that they make on youngsters’ lives. They have a number of exciting plans for the game with Doncaster Rovers and I hope that it proves to be a hugely successful day.”
