Emmaus, a Coventry and Warwickshire is a local independent homelessness charity, will be doing a bucket collection on Retro Day against Doncaster Rovers.

The charity, which specialises in providing more than just a bed for the night for people who have experienced homelessness and social exclusion, will be at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday in the hope of raising some vital funds.

Emmaus provide a home for as long as someone needs it, as well as meaningful work in our social enterprises. This works to help to restore feelings of self-esteem and give our companions, as residents are known, the opportunity to regain control of their lives.

Coventry City marketing manager Mark Hornby said: "We're always on the lookout to provide help to local and national charities all year round.

"We've welcomed many other charities to perform bucket collections this season and they've always fed back that it is a great way of raising vital funds.

"Emmaus are a local charity performing some excellent work in the Coventry and Warwickshire area and we're delighted to help on what should be a busy day at the Ricoh Arena for Retro Day against Doncaster Rovers."
