Kingstonian in joint charity event with Corinthian-Casuals on 21st December.
Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness and Kingston Carers Network will be the beneficiaries from a special charity day on the Saturday before Christmas.
Kingstonian and Corinthian-Casuals Football Clubs are coming together on Saturday 21st December for a festive party in aid of two very worthy local causes. The Isthmian League Premier Division fixture sees the borough's two highest-ranked non-league sides meet. The afternoon will be in celebration of supporting football in Kingston-upon-Thames as well as uniting the community for worthwhile charities just before Christmas.
The two clubs have each selected a borough-based charity to support; Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness (KCAH) and Kingston Carers Network (KCN). We are asking anyone who attends to give generously for these causes.
KCAH are Corinthian-Casuals' charity partners and provide help to the homeless people in the Borough. They have requested vital food and clothing donations. Anyone attending the match who can bring item(s) from the following list will receive a delicious mince pie and free entry into a prize draw as a thank you:
- Pot Noodles
- Tea / Coffee / Sugar
- Used men's coats and jackets
- New or clean "used" sleeping bags but must be in their sleeves
- New or used rucksacks (ideally 60L so a sleeping bag can comfortably fit)
- New men's "trunks" underwear (size M or L)
- New socks
Further fundraising will also help KCN - Kingstonian's local community partners who are based in Tolworth Broadway. They provide support to more than 3000 adult carers and over 700 young carers from the Kingston Borough through a wide range of services.
The afternoon will be a celebration of local football and, following the match, there will be a festive after match party in the clubhouse.
You can visit the websites for KCAH and KCN to learn more about these excellent local charities:
