Volz' Donation

Friday 20 April 2007

The Blackburn Rovers match on Saturday is the nominated Community Awareness fixture and the day will feature many activities promoting the Fulham FC Community Sports Trust.

On such an important day for the Club there will be pre match activities in Bishops Park for children starting from 1pm including inflatables, skill games, face painters and the hardest shot speed cage.

Children from our varied and diverse community teams will be handing out literature and fundraising via a bucket collection. Fulham started the first ever Downs Syndrome football team and they will be introduced to the crowd before kick off. Members of the Junior Fulham football teams will be presented with their trophies during the half-time interval as the day has a real community carnival atmosphere promoting the inclusive culture of Fulham FC.

Moritz Volz started the ball rolling with a £5,000 donation to the Fulham FC Community Sports Trust as he presented a cheque from his 15,000th Premiership goal at Chelsea to Head of Community, Simon Morgan, at an Awards Evening for Princes Trust volunteers.

“This is a great gesture from Moritz and typical of the work he and the other players do to support the Club within the local community. Saturday is a massive match for Fulham and all groups within the community will come together to fill the stadium and promote a vibrant atmosphere to support the team,” said Simon Morgan
