Club fun day calls on community support
10:00am Monday 30th April 2012 in News
A community fun day is being staged to pay for improvements to Romsey Town FC’s clubhouse.
The event, sponsored by Zanna Designs, begins at midday on May 5 and features a football match between JSC FC, a newly-formed Sunday side which will play at the Bypass Ground, from next season and a veterans team.
The teams will be playing for a new trophy, the Paul Gover Community Shield and it is hoped that this will be the first of many annual contests for the shield.
Tracy White, social club secretary and treasurer, said the clubhouse is in need of a new kitchen, toilets and baby changing area.
She said there were many willing volunteers willing to carry out the work but about £5,000 was needed to pay for materials.
However, the fun day is not just about fundraising. “We want to bring the families back to the club and the community behind Romsey Town,” said Tracy.
The event will feature live music from Lloyd Gissing, face painting, inflatables, a barbecue, children’s games, a penalty shoot-out competition, tombola and a stall selling cakes for the charity, Help for Heroes.
There will also be a raffle, tickets are already on sale at the clubhouse, with prizes including a signed Saints football and two soccer school places.
For more information about the event, call Tracy, on 01794 516691, or call in at the clubhouse tomorrow (Saturday) or Sunday afternoon.
