K's and Casuals Come Together at Christmas for Charity
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.
