Bucket collection in aid of basketball programme

City welcome Fulham to Ashton Gate tomorrow night in the Sky Bet Championship and the fixture will raise money for the Bristol Metropolitan Academy Basketball programme.

The invaluable programme was created to improve the education, achievements and opportunities of Bristol based athletes by blending sporting and educational activities, which focus on behaviour, attendance and punctuality.

In 2019 the group leaders would like to take the pupils to San Francisco for a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience.

The trip includes US coaching clinics, socio-cultural events, games against US opposition as well as tours and goal setting sessions with educational welfare officers from US Colleges.

Volunteers will be based throughout the concourse ahead of kick-off so if you are able to - no matter how big or small - please give a donation to help fund this life changing trip.

A crowd of over 20,000 is already guaranteed for City's encounter with the Cottagers and tickets remain on general sale.
