K's and Casuals Come Together at Christmas for Charity

Christmas 2018

Kingstonian and Corinthian-Casuals Football Clubs are coming together on the 22nd December for a festive party in aid of two very worthy local causes.

The Bostik League Premier Division fixture sees the borough’s two highest-ranked senior 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’re asking anyone who attends to give generously for these causes.

KCAH – who provide help to the homeless 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 entry into a prize draw as a thank you.

• Pot Noodles
• Tea / Coffee / Sugar
• Used men's coats / 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 events will help support KCN – Kingstonian’s local community partners who are based in Tolworth Broadway. They provide support to more than 3,000 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 sport and supplemented with a variety of food and stalls, for those last minute Christmas gift ideas. Following the match, there will be a fans' ‘crossbar challenge’ and guests will be invited to the ‘after party’ with live entertainment in a festive family atmosphere.

Gates open at 1pm and kickoff for the match is 3pm. Admission is £10 adults, £6 concessions (Over 60’s). Students, with valid ID can enter for £4 and Under 18s, with accompanying adult are FREE.

King George’s Arena is located along Hook Rise South, Tolworth just 10 minutes’ walk from the Broadway. Postcode is KT6 7NA.

You can visit KCAH and KCN’s websites to learn more about these worthy local charities.
