The Rovers in the Community Trust are delighted to participate in the SPFL Trust’s annual Christmas Festive Friends initiative to bring festive cheer to their communities either by arranging a Christmas lunch and giving out presents or by making up and delivering Christmas hampers. The Community Trust also fundraise for Christmas cheer by having a bucket collection at a home game and in raffling a luxury Christmas hamper. The funds raised are shared between the FF event, the football club and a charity of choice. In 2019 this was Coatbridge Foodbank and in 2020 Mary’s Meals.
In December 2019, over 20 guests enjoyed a great lunch at the Mint restaurant and received Rovers related gifts and were delighted special guests with drop ins from members of the first team squad. Due to Covid19 restrictions Festive Friends will more likely be the delivery of a hamper containing of festive goodies. Watch out for our Santa’s little helpers in the lead up to Christmas 2020.
