Players charity of the year to benefit for our game against Hartlepool
This Saturday we’re happy to welcome our friends from the player’s charity of the year – Happy Days Children’s Charity for our home match against Hartlepool. Since the partnership began last summer, players have been engaging with this important charity in a number of ways, like their visit to the Weatherfield Academy.
We’re sure you’ll welcome their team of bucket collectors warmly too, so please do give as generously as you can.
Here’s why your help is so important:
Last year, Happy Days helped over 23,000 courageous kids with life-limiting illnesses, mental and physical disabilities and those who had suffered abuse and neglect, with a vital respite break. The charity also gave magical days out to children who had lost a parent or sibling, as well as young carers supporting their families. Happy Days receives no government funding and rely on the support of people just like you to continue their vital work.
At a time of economic uncertainty, cuts to care support and fears of unemployment, families who already struggle are facing even harder times. The increased stresses on families already struggling to cope with additional pressure can ultimately lead to turmoil, ill health, debt and other effects that can tear families apart.
Happy Days is a small charity based in Luton that works in communities to support some of the most vulnerable children in the UK with a vital respite break. We all need a holiday from time to time and for families caring for children with special needs, a simple day out at the seaside or a trip to a farm park can be a vital lifeline.
However you choose to help, Happy Days is always grateful for your support.
