Frenbot Football Charity Match in Mansfield

Feb 4, 2020

Please come and join in with the fun and spread the word……

In 2018 Craig French and Russ Talbot from Full Circle Employment Agency Ltd raised £3150.80 for The National Autistic Society and last year they raised an overwhelming amount of £5800 which went towards The Kings Mill Toy Appeal. They could not have done this without all the help and support from local businesses and everyone who joined in on the day.

They are currently planning the next match which is taking place in June 2020 and the two charities chosen are The Kings Mill Toy Appeal which provides toys for really poorly children on ward 25 at Kings Mill Hospital and Once upon a Smile (Charity No: 1170975), which provides opportunities for children to understand and express their emotions during bereavement in a fun and safe environment.

Once upon a smile will be bringing their own team which is made up of Celebrities from TV, Stage, Radio and Ex-Footballers.

If you could help and would like to get involved or simply want to come along and join in the fun, then the charity football match will be taking place on Saturday 13th June 2020 at Forest Town Arena (NG19 0EE).

The gates open at 1pm with kick off at 3pm. If you would like to donate towards our raffle or offer a cash donation it would be greatly appreciated. AFC Mansfield have been very kind to provide the football ground.

Local support……… Lots of Celebrities……… 

On the match day there will be plenty of children’s entertainment to include Butterfly Effex Face Painting, KCM Inflatables Bouncy Castle, and Simon Hockley’s Mini Fun Fair.   

A wonderful selection of food will be provided by Pizza Pi Pizzeria, Alkis & Co Burgers and Hotdogs, SCL Catering Ice-Cream and Doughnuts, SB Party Creation Muffins and Waffles and Spice Club Asian Infusion stall. Several local companies have already got involved, including Mansfield 103.2, Gareth Bull, Paul Haywood from Alrate Cheesecakes, Dean Bartlett from The Active Health Centre, Henry and George Essential Oil Products, Mark Yeomans from Mansfield Doggy Day Care and Dalmatian Systems.

A Photographer will be present to take plenty of photos and the local drum and bugle band will once again be showing their support by playing while the players make their way onto the pitch.
