Community & Charities Day | Saturday 11th November | Redditch United vs Barwell

On Saturday 11th November we will be hosting Barwell in a League fixture and we have dedicated the day to support local charities, communities and people.

Tickets are DISCOUNTED if purchased online in advance.

Remembrance Sunday follows this fixture and so we will take the opportunity to pay our respects to those who have bravely fought for our country. We will be joined by the Royal British Legion as they collect donations for the Poppy Appeal, as well as welcoming the current serving 37th Signal Regiment (Redditch Army Reserves), Hereford & Worcester Cadets and members of the Redditch Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Club.

The Redditch Army Reserves will have a stand near the turnstiles with interactive activities before they head out onto the pitch to perform the last post and observe a minute’s silence. The Hereford & Worcester Cadets will form a guard of honour for the two teams as they walk out at The Valley.

In attendance will also be the Batchley Support Group who will have a stand next to the turnstiles as they aim to highlight all of the important, life-changing work they do in the local community. BSG recently won an award for ‘Charity of the Year’ at the 2023 Redditch Business Awards.

Rigby Hall School & our U10’s (Danny Sewell) will be mascots for the game ahead of kick off, and we hope they enjoy the game.

There will be two performances from ENTW9 Dance Company, the first being before kick off and the second at half time.

Following the game, there will be a celebration in the 1891 Lounge with a DJ as we raise money and celebrate the life of Beth Junkin, Jess Faulkner’s (the Chairman’s wife) older sister. 

A message from Mrs Chairman

On the 11th of April, my beautiful big sister Beth passed away. She had battled stage 4 cervical cancer for four years. This might seem a bit personal, but I feel like someone’s light shouldn’t just be allowed to go out, without as many people as possible knowing who they were, and what they achieved.

She was Beth Junkin, 38 years old and a mother of two little boys aged 4 and 8. She was a psychology lecturer at Newcastle Sixth Form College, where she was adored. She was the ‘mother of the college’, she won ‘Inspirational Teacher’ awards, she helped people to see their worth, and young people who were lost find their way.

On the 11th of November, we are raising money for St Benedicts Hospice, who took care of my sister throughout her monumental battle with cancer and offered not just medical care, but support, friendship, counseling and love. My brother-in-law has described St Benedict’s as a lifeline for our family, I would say they are literally angels.   

Please join us after the game for a disco and karaoke night (I’ll even throw in some free shots to help with the stage fright!) Let’s have a dance and some fun and raise some money for a wonderful cause!

Life is fragile. Be present, be kind, and cherish those that you love.

We hope you can attend the fixture to support The Reds and all of the charities and organisations that will be in attendance.
