Toys for Grenfell

On Saturday 15th December the Merthyr Town FC supporters’ groups Red Flag Martyrs and MTFC On The Terraces are heading to Harrow Borough for our Southern League fixture but more importantly for our annual Christmas jumper trip.

This year’s event will be slightly different to previous years as we will also be supporting Solidarity Sports and the Non-League 4 Grenfell movement by firstly raising awareness of the awful Grenfell Tower tragedy that affected so many people and has displaced many families including young children.
They say travel expands the mind but coupled with football it certainly expands your horizons and during a trip to Blackpool we caught up with our new friends from Whitehawk who are behind the @nonlge4grenfell twitter account which uses football as a vehicle to remind people of the continued plight of the survivors of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

As football supporters of a community-owned club we feel now it’s time to do our bit so as well as raising awareness of this tragedy we will also be asking any supporters travelling to the gamewhether on the fans’ bus or not to purchase and bring a small gift or toy (football, cuddly toys, games for example) unwrapped so that we can donate them to the children of the displaced families to make their Christmas a little better and hopefully bring a smile to their faces at what must be a very difficult time for them all.
We will aim to arrive at Harrow Borough Football Club around 1pm to meet up with Solidarity Sports & the Non-League 4 Grenfell movement to hand over our donations & gifts.
Harrow Borough FC are also involved and will be helping us on the day too.
We urge as many supporters to get involved with this as possible, let’s make a positive difference to young lives this Christmas.
For more information please contact us via
Donations will be accepted in the club shop on 8thDecember before and after the Merthyr Town v Kings Langley match (kick off at 3.00pm)
