ALLOA-BASED BSC Glasgow will donate the admission takings from their upcoming SFA South Challenge Cup match against Edusport Academy to The Gate Charity.
BSC have been ground-sharing with Alloa Athletic for the last two seasons and the club have also given away 50 free tickets to the match for service users at The Gate to go along to The Indodrill Stadium to enjoy the match.
George Fraser, BSC Glasgow’s general manager, said: “We have been playing in Alloa for a couple of seasons and we want to give back the warm welcome we’ve been given by the local community by donating our admission takings to The Gate, a charity which we believe do fantastic work in the community, offering an array of projects all designed to help people in need.
“The South Challenge Cup is always an exciting tournament for us and it’s one that we won in our inaugural season. We’re really looking forward to welcoming people from The Gate to enjoy what’s always an exciting match between ourselves and Edusport Academy.”
Marie Brownhill, Centre Manager at The Gate, added: “We are absolutely delighted to be supported by BSC Glasgow with this very kind donation of help.
“The Gate Charity operates various projects such as a Crisis Foodbank, Soup Pot, Community Café and Home Starter Pack service as well as smaller community services to help overcome social isolation, homelessness, poverty, mental health issues and addiction.
“As a charity, we are constantly fundraising and trying to raise much needed funds to operate our projects to support the most vulnerable within our community. We can’t thank BSC Glasgow enough for their very valued help and support.”
Admission at The Indodrill Stadium on Saturday is £4 for adults and £2 for concessions, with everything taken on the door being donated.
The club are encouraging everyone to come out and roar the side onto victory while supporting a fantastic local organisation.
