Trust find home for semi-final flags

Red and white flags handed out to City supporters ahead of Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg with Manchester City have since found a new home and purpose.

More than 22,000 foil flags were placed across the Dolman, South, Lansdown and Atyeo Stand - helping to create a sea of colour and vibrant atmosphere in BS3.

Following the game - thanks to Bristol City Community Trust and the Ashton Park School Sports Partnership - the flags have been given to primary schools across the city for use in dance lessons and festivals.

Speaking of the donation, Community Trust chief executive officer Dan White, said: “We work closely with Cherry Kraus at Ashton Park School Sports Partnership, and half way through the match she suggested the flags would be great for the local schools, for events such as dance festivals.

“Cherry and her team do a great job helping get school children in South Bristol engaged in sport and PE, and we try and help them in any way we can.”

“We look forward to working in partnership throughout the season, culminating in a football festival at Ashton Gate at the end of the season.”

"It was a great sight to see so many supporters waving their flags when Bristol City took on Manchester City on Tuesday, and we were delighted to be contacted by Bristol City Community Trust to put them to good use,” said Cherry Kraus, Partnership Manager for the Ashton Park Schools Partnership.

“We have received thousands of flags, which are being donated to ten primary schools in South Bristol will be used for a variety of reasons, from dance classes to crafts sessions."
