Graham Robson March 30, 2019

Whitehawk Football Club, working closely with East Brighton community groups and Brighton & Hove City Council, are holding a Community Day before kick off today (Saturday, March 30) from 12.30pm.

THE club play their Bostik League Premier Division game against Bishops Stortford at 3pm and, as a build up to the game, many of East Brighton’s community groups have been invited to attend the Community Day, giving fans and residents a chance to understand their community a little more, as well as sampling some of the many projects, programmes and initiatives that are available to them.

There will be live music from the music students of club sponsors the MET College plus DJs, face-painting, raffles, interactive stalls, information on healthy lifestyles, weight loss and anti-smoking initiatives and much more! The matchday mascots will be from the nearby Whitehawk Estate Crew Club Under 12s, as well as the girls’ teams from local Junior Football Club, the Hollingbury Hawks.

Kevin Miller, Head of Commercial at Whitehawk Football Club, said: “We have worked really hard as a club to change perceptions of what grassroots football can mean to communities, especially within this amazing city, and felt that at this specific time, it was the right thing to do.

“The players, management, club members and our magnificent Ultras welcome those who are visiting for the first time, hope that they forge new friendships, and enjoy the Hawks’ matchday experience at their local club.”
