Support Club Doncaster Foundation as Doncaster Rovers take on Crewe Alexandra in their sold out play-off fixture

10 May 2024

This evening Doncaster Rovers FC will be taking on Crewe Alexandra FC in the second leg of the League 2 Play Off semi-final, with a sold our home crowd in attendance.

The Foundation team will be supporting the pre-match activity, around the stadium footprint and in the Family Stand, with a range of activities available.

There will be some usual activities within the Family Stand concourse, alongside our health & wellbeing team who will have their new smoothie bike, giving fans the opportunity to have a go at creating their own smoothie. 

Fans can also take part in the ‘Name The Smoothie’ competition to be in with the chance of winning a signed shirt, by entering their smoothie name for £1. (Please note, this is cash payment only). All money donated will go back into supporting the projects the Foundation delivers on a weekly basis. 

If you don’t fancy having a go at making your own smoothie, the staff will be on hand to discuss a range of projects that you can get involved in, with free Foundation Fitness gym passes also being handed out this evening. 

Our community delivery staff will also be setting up some football activities outside the Belle Vue Bar as part of the fan park, for anyone to get involved in.

Make sure to arrive to the ground early to take advantage of all of the FREE activities taking place this evening. Turnstiles open at 6pm, with all activities starting at the same time. 

Alongside the Family activities, there will also be a raffle to raise funds for our Foundation. Fans can get involved in the raffle to win a signed Billy Sharp shirt.

To be in with a chance of winning the signed shirt:

  • Text CDF to 70215
  • Then decide how many tickets you want to purchase.
  • Each ticket costs £1 and you can enter as many times as you wish.
  • The raffle will be live for a week so people can continue to purchase tickets, the winner will be drawn on the 17th May.

At half time, we’ll be promoting the RevivR training through British Heart Foundation. Their campaign highlights the importance of CPR training and that it takes just 15 minutes to complete. 

Any purchased raffle tickets during half time will receive an extra entry to the raffle and the funds collected during half time will be split between Club Doncaster Foundation and the British Heart Foundation.

Fundraising & Events Officer, Phoebe Sneddon commented “We’ve seen a great amount of support from fans across the season and these donation are vital in enabling us to continue our core services. 

“We support people across Doncaster and have programmes that span from pre-natal to our ageing well programme. 

“Your donations can help us improve more people’s lives across Doncaster.”
