Once Again, Over 50s Can Travel For Free To City’s Home Game – We Also Need Your Help…

Following the festive period, the start of the new year can be a lonely time for some.

Once again, over 50s are welcome to travel for free to Worcester City’s home game versus Walsall Wood on Saturday 12th January 2019.

This initiative, in partnership with AGE UK through the Fans For Diversity campaign ran by the FSF & Kick It Out, aims to help older people to attend Worcester City games by offering free return transport from the City centre to the Victoria Ground and back.

It might not seem like a lot, but simply going to the football can bring a sense of belonging that a lot of people have lost as they have got older. Especially following Christmas time, some older people can start to feel quite isolated. If you have a relative, friend, colleague or even a neighbour, let them know about this.

Busses are ran from the Pitchcroft Race Course carpark by the cafe which is the pick-up and drop-off point. Anyone interested in booking a seat on the bus for themselves or someone else can do so via the details below.

How we need your help…

Unfortunately, there is only so far we can go with spreading the word by email. It will be of great help if we can all work together to support older people in the Worcester community through football.

We would like to kindly ask City supporters to help us spread the word about this initiative by printing off the poster from the link below and to pass it on to neighbours or to ask to put it up in your local pub or post office.

The poster contains the dates and details of the remaining games supported by this initiative.
