Festive fun for Fleetwood fixture - The Coventry Observer

Festive fun for Fleetwood fixture

Coventry Editorial 17th Dec, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

THERE will be a festive feel for the Sky Blues this Saturday when Fleetwood visit the Ricoh Arena.

Tickets for the match have been slashed to just £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and £1 for children and there will be a Christmas atmosphere during the build-up to the game.

Members of Coventry 23 and Nuneaton 136 Round Tables and friends will be carrying out charity collections on the day and will have Santa’s sleighs posted at popular points outside the Ricoh.

50 per cent of the money raised will go to local charities while the other half will go towards the Round Table Children’s Wish fund which helps arrange bespoke wishes for children with life threatening illnesses.

“The club, who are dear to my heart, have been fantastic in helping with this event.” said Tom Atkins, who is co-coordinating the collections.

“As soon as Coventry City came back to the Ricoh, I wanted to get the Round Table involved with the club around Christmas time and this fixture is the perfect way to do that.

“We want to raise as much money as we possibly can to help local causes and also to help make the wishes of children with life threatening illnesses come true.”

As well as the Round Table collections, there will be Christmas themed activities in the JSB area of the Family Zone concourse which are being organised by volunteers with help from donations by the Supporters Consultative Group.

To buy tickets for the game go to ccfcshop.co.uk, visit CCFC Superstore at the Gallagher Retail Park or call 024 7699 2326. Anyone Interested in joining Round Table should log onto roundtable.co.uk
