Bradford Hospitals’ Charity scores golden goal thank to Bradford City FC

Kelly Thornham News

Bradford Hospitals’ Charity is delighted to be chosen as one of only a handful of charities to be officially backed by Bradford City FC this season.

The charity was selected by a panel at the club after it received a host of applications for its ‘chosen charity’ status.

Each of the three charities chosen will be highlighted at a forthcoming home clash this season.

The hospitals’ charity will take centre stage at City’s meeting with Salford City on 21 December when volunteers from Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will be out rattling buckets to collect donations and raise awareness of the great work the charity does.

Head of Fundraising for Bradford Hospitals’ Charity, Hayley Collis, said: “We’re absolutely delighted and so proud to be backed by our fantastic local football club.

“We’ve always had strong links with City but the opportunity to raise the charity’s profile at a home match, plus many other times throughout the football season, is priceless and a real honour for us.

“Everyone’s life is touched somehow by their local NHS so I’m sure we’ll get some great support on the day.”

Hayley added: “Together, all NHS charities in the UK give £1million every single day to the NHS, funding equipment, projects, training and research. We are so lucky to have the support of the public and our staff to help us provide the very best for Bradford.”
