The Football League is celebrating its official charity partnership with Help the Hospices with a dedicated Help the Hospices Football Week, from March 3 to 11.

Fans, players and managers from The Football League’s 72 clubs will show their support for hospice care during the week of action.

MK Dons is twinned with Willen Hospice as part of The Football League’s official charity partnership with Help the Hospices, the UK charity for hospice care.

During Help the Hospices Football Week, MK Dons will:

Hold a bucket collection for Willen Hospice at the home fixture with Exeter City on Saturday 10th March, kick-off 3pm

Invite a hospice nurse to the Exeter match as a VIP guest

Visit Willen Hospice to learn more about their vital work

Wear sunflower badges to show support for Help the Hospices

Players will warm up for the Exeter game in Willen Hospice T-shirts

Match shirts from the game will be auctioned at the end of the season with all proceeds going to Willen Hospice

Feature Willen Hospice in the matchday programme and on the Big Screen

Organise a player visit to the Hospice and to one of the Hospice shops

Invite supporters to bid for places for the half time cross bar challenge with all proceeds going to Willen Hospice

Invite MK Dons season ticket holders and members to donate their 5% discount from purchases made in the Club Superstore to Willen Hospice.

Andrew Cullen, MK Dons Group Sales and Marketing Director said: “Half of our fans are likely to know someone who has been cared for by a hospice. Hospice care is free for patients and families, but it’s not free to provide. Please help us to make a difference to terminally ill people and their families by getting involved during Help the Hospices Football Week.”
