IMAGINE if your whole world changed in a day. Imagine having to leave everything you own and everyone you know.
Saturday 9th January saw a hard fought 1-1 draw at the Lamb between Tamworth FC and FC United of Manchester, but the real winners on the day were The Live Love Laugh Foundation.
Tamworth FC very kindly allowed Live Love Laugh Foundation the opportunity to fund raise in the ground on Match Day.
Supporters from both clubs gave generously to the national charity that help the rising number of children who enter emergency care after fleeing violent situations at home.
Karen Williams founder of the charity, who pack the ‘buddy bags’ in Tamworth and distribute nationally told Tamworth Informed:
“Restoring a sense of safety and security into a child’s life during a traumatic time is one of the first steps to recovery. By providing these children with a few essential items, we help make the transition into emergency care a little easier. To support children in this situation we have created the Buddy Bag to provide comfort when all else has been removed.
“We’re truly grateful to Tamworth FC and all the fans who supported us on the day”
A total of £347 was collected on the day.
