Big Coat Day will take place on Monday December 26th 2011, ahead of FC United v Ashton United, kick off 3.00pm, Gigg Lane, Bury.
Last winter 5,000 excess deaths occurred in the North West, many because of lack of heating and warm clothing. That’s one person every 30 minutes.
FC United, with the support of Bury FC and Ashton United, hopes to play its part in helping the homeless and destitute through the winter months with our Big Coat Day. People are asked to bring their spare Winter clothing down to the forecourt at Gigg Lane where charities ’Mustard Tree’ and the ’Boaz Trus’ will load the clothing into vans to take away and distribute to those most in need. The collection will take place from noon to finish at 3pm when FC United begin their home fixture on Boxing Day.
Under 18s go free, so make it a family event and work off the Season’s festivities - it promises to be a Winter warmer.
So come down, enjoy the game and bring an extra coat. "Warm hands, warm hearts"
