City Support The Salvation Army
Cardiff City Football Club & Cardiff City Stadium have this Christmas thrown their support behind The Salvation Army.
Earlier this month, Curtis Nelson and Robert Glatzel handed over new toys to the church and charity for their Christmas Present Appeal. We'd like to thank all of our staff who kindly donated at Cardiff City Stadium, The Vale Resort Training Facility and the CCS Testing Centre.
Speaking about the occasion, Cardiff City defender Curtis said: “As a squad, we are happy to put our support behind The Salvation Army’s Christmas Present Appeal. They provide an incredible service to those who really need it.
“It has been a tough year for our community, and we hope that these donations can make a difference.”
Major George Baker, the Salvation Army’s divisional leader for the south and mid-Wales division, added: “We’re delighted to have the support of the Bluebirds this year and pass on our thanks to the players, staff and supporters for their generosity. As a church and charity, we are inspired by the Christmas message of hope to reach out to families in need with presents for children who might otherwise miss out on the joy of opening a gift.
“Through our frontline work in Cardiff and across South Wales, we have seen first-hand the impact of the pandemic on the families we support. This year has been difficult for so many and we appreciate the generosity people continue to show.”
