On Saturday 15th December the Merthyr Town FC supporters’ groups Red Flag Martyrs and MTFC On The Terraces will head to Harrow Borough for our Southern League fixture but more importantly for our annual Christmas jumper trip.
This year’s event will be slightly different to previous years as we will also be supporting Solidarity Sports and the Non-League 4 Grenfell movement by firstly raising awareness of the awful Grenfell Tower tragedy that affected so many people and has displaced many families including young children.
As football supporters we feel now it’s time to do our bit so as well as raising awareness of this tragedy we will also be asking all supporters travelling to the game whether on our coach or not to purchase and bring a small gift or toy (football, cuddly toys, games for example) so that we can donate them to the children of the still displaced families to make their Christmas a little better and hopefully bring a smile their faces at what must be a very difficult time for them all.
We will aim to arrive at Harrow Borough Football Club around 1pm to meet up with Solidarity Sports & the Non-League 4 Grenfell movement to hand over our donations which will be very warmly received.
We urge as many supporters to get involved with this as possible, let’s make a positive difference to young lives this Christmas.
