Ticket Scheme Update

Trust News
As a follow up to the free tickets offered to local school children for the Macclesfield match, following the open training session last week, the Bluebirds Trust Ticket Scheme paid for over 200 others to attend the match. Tickets were offered to local schools to encourage parents who may not otherwise have been able to attend with their youngsters who had the free tickets from the club, along with other children from the schools involved. The tickets were purchased using the funds raised from the Trust 5 a side tournament and through donations from members. We received a thank you letter from Ollie (see link below) Donations are always welcome for this scheme. If you would like to make a donation please get in touch. Thank you letter from Ollie
