Club helping local causes at tomorrow’s FA Cup tie…
Newport County AFC have invited representatives from Coed Eva school to take part in a bucket collection at tomorrow’s fixture.
The school suffered severe damage from a fire in the early hours of New Year’s day, and has remained closed to pupils while the damage has been assessed.
Commenting on the news, Director Gavin Foxall said, “It has been great that we are able to support local causes such as this.”
“We are expecting a bumper crowd for Saturday’s game and I know the supporters of Newport County will help Coed Eva in their time of need.”
“The Club prides itself on helping local causes and its work in the community, so we felt that it was only appropriate to invite Coed Eva to the game to try and raise funds to support the repair work.”
Bucket collections for Coed Eva Primary School will be located at various places outside the ground prior to kick-off.
After the game the marquee will be open for a function in support of Marie Curie, with the Band ‘2 Rude’ booked to entertain guests. Entry to the event is £3, with all proceeds going to the charity.
The event in the marquee, sponsored by the Ivy Bush, will also include the auction of a signed shirt and match ball, that has kindly been donated by the Business Club.
