Local charity Coventry Cyrenians get cash boost from City and Orient fans
Coventry City and Leyton Orient fans helped local charity Coventry Cyrenians raise a fantastic total of £458.18 when the charity collected at the Sky Blues final home game of the season last Saturday.
Coventry Cyrenians, who are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, support homeless, vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the local community.
Clients are helped to address and resolve the problems that led to their being homeless.
These problems are often incredibly complex such as financial difficulties, loss of employment, domestic violence, mental health issues, drug and alcohol abuse, and a break down in relationships with family and friends.
The collection was just one of a number of charity collections which have taken place at Coventry City home matches throughout the 2012/13 season, helping to raise thousands of pounds for local charities and good causes.
Coventry City’s Stacie McDermott said “It is great that our supporters gave as generously as they did for Coventry Cyrenians to raise this total.
This money will aid them in continuing to provide services to the community to help clients to address and resolve the problems that led to their being homeless.”
