Cardiff City FC, in partnership with Cardiff City FC Foundation, is delighted to be hosting the fifth annual Foundation Day on Saturday, 21st April.
This year, Foundation Day will coincide with the visit of Nottingham Forest to Cardiff City Stadium, with a number of events taking place at the home of the Bluebirds ahead of the 7.45pm kick-off.
To raise awareness of the work that Cardiff City FC Foundation undertakes, Cardiff City FC’s digital channels will embrace a Foundation Takeover in the build-up to the day.
Please take a moment to read the following information from our charity partners…
As the official charity of Cardiff City Football Club, we’re privileged to be able to use the unique appeal of Cardiff City FC to change lives.
We are committed to:
- Working closer with our communities
- Creating opportunities for people to lead healthier lives
- Improving education and employment opportunities
- Reducing offending and reoffending
At Cardiff City FC Foundation, we’re proud of the difference we make: during the 2016/17 season, the #BluebirdsCharity engaged with 17,068 unique participants and 250 different schools. 100% of our students, completing a BTEC Level 3 Qualification, progressed into further education or employment.
Foundation Day celebrates the success of our beneficiaries, proving that our club changes lives. There will be a celebration inside Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday, as well as a number of Foundation activities in and around the ground.
Additionally, a post-match auction will take place on eBay, with each member of Saturday’s matchday squad’s shirts up for grabs. All funds raised will help us support children, young people and families who face education, employment and health inequalities to achieve their full potential.
We want you, the Cardiff City FC faithful, to be as interactive as possible during this year’s Foundation Day, so make sure you visit our website and are following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram! Get involved with the build-up and on the day itself, using the hashtags #OurClubChangesLives and #BluebirdsCharity.
There are plenty of ways that you can get involved, including fundraising and volunteering. For more information, visit cardiffcityfcfoundation.org.uk
