Tickets.com’s T.Cares Program Helps Raise Funds for the Princess Poppy Rainbow Appeal for Lifesaving Treatment
The parents of a six-year-old girl with stage 4 cancer…
The Tickets.com team in the UK continue to show their support to the T.Cares programme by giving ten corporate hospitality tickets to the Bristol Rovers Community Trust for the recent Bristol Rovers vs Milton Keynes (MK) Dons game in Sky Bet League One.
Through the global T.Cares initiative, Tickets.com employees seek to support the communities where they work and live – from charity fundraising and community service, to creating unforgettable experiences for those in need.
The UK team chose to support Bristol Rovers Community Trust in support of ‘The Return of the Gas Girls.’ The trust recently announced the return of a Senior Women’s football team alongside an Under 18s side for the 2019/20 season. The ‘Gas Girls’ were originally formed in 1998 but became Bristol Academy WFC in 2005 before finally becoming Bristol City Women’s Football Club in 2015. Now, for the first time since 2005, Bristol Rovers are being represented in the English Women’s football pyramid.
Tickets.com chose to give ten corporate hospitality tickets to the ‘Gas Girls’ for the home match against MK Dons at The Memorial Stadium as many of the young women involved in the team had never had the opportunity to attend a first team fixture, let alone sit in the hospitality seats.
Adam Tutton, Bristol Rovers Community Trust CEO and Women’s Chairman said: “Everyone at Bristol Rovers Community Trust are incredibly thankful for the generous donation of 10 hospitality tickets from the team at Tickets.com. The re-launched Bristol Rovers Women’s team thoroughly enjoyed their day at The Memorial Stadium. It was a great opportunity to offer the girls this experience and become a presence at the club.”
Commenting on the day, Natalie Jones, Internal Sales Manager at Tickets.com explained: “Women’s football is going from strength to strength, and it is great to see the re-launch of the ‘Gas Girls’ as Bristol Rover’s senior women’s team. We were delighted to be able to provide what was the first ever first team experience for many of the players and all from the comfort of the hospitality seats. We hope they all enjoyed themselves and best of luck for the season!”
