Tamworth FC Chairman and his wife BOB & PAM ANDREWS will be personally sponsoring the The Bath game.
Bob is celebrating his 20th year as Tamworth FC Chairman and he will be donating £1 for every person that attends the game to Jo's appeal.
Jo's Appeal is the Tamworth Herald Campaign to raise £20,000 to fund a year's care provided by Tamworth nurse Jo Pickering, at St Giles Hospice's Compassus Centre. The Compassus Centre provides in patient care for local people with cancer and other serious illnesses, and 1 in 5 of all patients receiving care within the Centre are from Tamworth. Without nurses like Jo, hospice care simply wouldn't exist - and at the Compassus Centre in St Giles Hospice, not only do the nurses perform an essential role in providing specialist care for local people living with cancer and other serious illnesses, they also offer vital comfort and support for their families and carers. By supporting Jo's Appeal, you are paying for this invaluable care to be provided - and making a huge difference to people's lives when they need it most. It costs £80 to fund a hospice nurse for one day, or £10 for each hour, and every minute makes a massive difference to patients and their families.
There will also be a bucket collection at the game.
So, lets make it a big crowd on friday and also raise money for a good cause
