Bury AFC’s Shakers Community, the Rangers Charity Foundation (@RFC_Charity) and the Lee Rigby Foundation (@leerigbyfdn) are delighted to announce their collaboration in a virtual friendly on July 4th at 3:00 pm.
The virtual friendly will feature a Bury Legends team and a Rangers Legends team playing for the Lee Rigby Memorial Trophy.
Covid 19 has disrupted the fundraising efforts of all three organisations with their main fundraisers all being postponed indefinitely. Following some discussions between Bury AFC and Rangers, the virtual friendly was born and the monies raised from this will be split equally between all three parties.
Fans and supporters who which to buy a virtual ticket are being asked to pay what they can spare.
With the monies raised Bury AFC will be investing in improving facilities for their disabled supporters with any additional monies earmarked for other community projects.
The Lee Rigby Foundation will be putting their share towards the purchase of a number of static caravans. These will be available to families who have lost a loved one in military service and for Veterans and their families who need a break.
The Rangers Charity Foundation will use their funds to continue to deliver a diverse range of charitable community programmes from diversity and inclusion to Health and wellbeing, in conjunction with managing the Ibrox Community Hub.
