Rochdale Sacred Heart Tigers Football Club has donated Christmas gifts to local children supported by the Barnado’s children’s charity.
The football club has been supporting Barnardo’s Rochdale Services for the last twelve months, donating their sub money so children could be supported during the Covid pandemic. In the run up to Christmas the club also co-ordinated a toy appeal.
Paul Jackson from The Sacred Heart Tigers Football Club said: “We have collected the gifts for kids because we feel no child should go without over Christmas.
“As a football club, we feel it is important to give back to the community and Barnardo’s is a cause that is close to our hearts.”
Kim Kelly, Barnardo’s Team Manager for Rochdale Services, said: “The gifts that have been donated will be delivered to families across the borough. The team at Rochdale would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in helping the children we support celebrate Christmas this year.”
Barnardo’s Rochdale Services offer a range of support for disabled children and children with individual needs aged 0 – 25 years and their families.
The support includes SENDIASS (Special Educational Needs Disability Information Advice Support Service), Short Break activity groups for children and young people with individual needs and workshops for parents and carers who have children with social and communication needs.
For more details about the support it offers families, please ring 01706 769634.
