EVENTS

At half-time of Saturday's game, the STFC Community Foundation will have members of their Mini Foundation Friday Session (3-4 years-old) playing in a special exhibition game on the pitch at half-time. 

Please be sure to give them your full support and give all involved a huge cheer!

Also, prior to the game, we will have Go Again, who speciliase in mental health in sport, and the SWA (Swindon Domestic Abuse Support Service) both carrying out bucket collections.

These are both great causes, so please be generous where you can.

The SWA works tirelessly to help local people.  Domestic Abuse can happen to anyone at any age.  Today is the start of our partnership to raise awareness of, and to stop domestic abuse in Swindon

The charity helps everyone affected – it’s not only women who are affected but also men - and they also have specific programmes to help children impacted by abuse.  They run a 24-hour helpline so whoever you are, you can talk to someone about your problems.

They’ll be at the exits again after the game so dig in your pockets and give whatever you can. Every penny goes to help local people in need of help.

The Legends Lounge will be open from 12pm for home fans ONLY with a match ticket, and will open until 5:45pm after the game.

We would also like to make fans aware that there will be a bar located in the Town End for Saturday's game on a one-off trial basis.
