Speaking of the upcoming day, John Davis, CEO of the Foundation said: “The Community Day gives us an opportunity to shine a light on the fantastic work that happens across Doncaster on every day of the week, 365 days a year.

“We get significant support from the owners, to Grant and Cliff and the first team squad and it makes a huge difference to our ability to improve people’s lives across the city.

“We want fans to come down to the stadium early, meet our team, try the activities and learn more about the organisation itself and how everything we do, impacts individuals on a regular basis.

“We look forward to welcoming you on the day!”

Following the end of the Rovers match, the activities will also feature in and around the stadium during the pre-match build up for the Belles fixture v Chester-Le-Street.
