Representatives from Rochdale Children's Moorland Home with their cheque
Rochdale AFC has presented Rochdale Children’s Moorland Home and Dale In The Community Sports Trust with a £868 cheque each.
The charities were presented with the cheques prior to Rochdale’s match against Accrington Stanley at the Crown Oil Arena on Saturday (12 October).
The funds were raised from the auctions of the three mascot packages for Dale’s Carabao Cup tie against Manchester United at Old Trafford, which raised £1,736.
A representative from the club said: “We would like to thank the parents of all three mascots for the funds raised for the charities, as well as Manchester United for donating the packages.”
Rochdale Children's Moorland Home at Nab Farm in Wardle acts as a respite for children from disadvantaged families as well as offering a week’s holiday for disadvantaged children. Providing the children with an excellent environment to improve their social skills, quite often, this is the only opportunity that these children have for a holiday.
The farm was donated by Frederick Lye, one of Rochdale's most distinguished citizens and benefactors, to the committee in the 1920s.
Dale in the Community Sports Trust is a registered charity, established in 1987, that delivers a variety of sports activities, coaching and educational services to support and benefit the communities of the Rochdale Borough.
