HORNETS TO HAND CUP CASH TO CHARITY IN UNIQUE GESTURE
Wed 29 Dec 2010
UNIQUELY in football, we believe, Watford FC will donate its share of the profits on ticket sales from the FA Cup 3rd Round tie against Hartlepool United to Marie Curie Cancer Care (the Football League's official charity for 2010/11).
Hornets' officials agreed the gesture just before Christmas - and to ensure there's definitely money to donate whatever the result, John Eustace and all his team-mates have agreed to waive their appearance fees should the Golden Boys fail to progress.
Therefore, the Saturday January 8 FA Cup tie at home to League 1 Pools has been designated as our 'Marie Curie Match'.
So simply by buying a reduced-price ticket (it's £10 for adults, £5 for concessions for this match), you can be assured that you'll be playing your part in raising what we hope will ultimately be a healthy five-figure sum for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
If you can't get to the game, or are a match ticket buyer looking to show further support for this great cause, then please visit www.justgiving.com/watfordfootballclub.
Chairman Graham Taylor has kindly kicked things off for us with his own personal donation - and he's left a message on the JustGiving site to encourage his fellow Hornets to join in.
Chairman Graham Taylor - hoping you'll follow his lead
We're also currently planning plenty of Marie Cure-related matchday activity - and will be bringing you more details throughout this week on watfordfc.com and via the club's official Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/wfcbadgemoose.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.
Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails.
Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer.
So it's the most efficient way to donate - we raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
