Radio Clyde Cash for Kids is to feature on the home strips of Clyde FC next season as the supporter owned club pledges its support for the children’s charity and to help make a difference to children in their local communities.
The new home kit for next season has been donated by businessman Kenny Campbell from The Legal Partnership, who asked that in return Radio Clyde Cash for Kids would appear on the front of the jerseys. This donation to Cash for Kids has a five figure marketing value.
Key elements of support for the charity;
- The club, following a £10,000 donation by BBK Capital Ltd, has set itself a charity challenge to help 400 local vulnerable and disabled children.
- Clyde FC has also announced that its’ outsourced kit supplier will donate 10% from all home strip sales to the fundraising initiative
- Support will also come in the form of a donation of a further 10% of new season ticket sales (2015/2016) generated directly via the Radio Clyde Cash for Kids website at – www.clydecashforkids.com
In addition, throughout the season there will be regular fundraising activities where Cash for Kids will form part of the club’s various fundraising events including can collections at home matches.
Clyde FC Director, Bobby Gracey, said: “It is an honour for Clyde FC to have the Cash for Kids logo on our home strip. I hope as many people as possible will get behind what we are all trying to achieve and raise money for such a great local community charity. None of this would have been possible without the generous financial support of Kenny Campbell and his ambition to match the club’s vision of making a relevant difference to our various local communities, whilst also maintaining grass roots community values.”
Debbie Fraser, Regional Charity Manger, Clyde Cash for Kids said: “Football reaches into the hearts of local communities which is exactly where Cash for Kids funded projects do the majority of their work. Every penny raised for Cash for Kids goes straight to those children that need it most and this gesture by Kenny and Clyde FC will go a long way in helping us support local projects which need support all through the year. We would like to thank everyone involved with Clyde who are contributing to helping 400 vulnerable children this year.”
In Glasgow and the west of Scotland alone, Radio Clyde Cash for Kids, raised almost £1.4million during 2014 allowing it to make over 31,500 financial awards to projects supporting more than 105,000 vulnerable and disabled children.
