LifeSkills assist Doncaster Rovers in the Philippines appeal

Doncaster Rovers' home game against Bolton Wanderers has been designated a fundraiser for charities in the Philippines led by the Rovers Foundation.

Rovers are one of only five clubs in the Football League chosen to support global projects as part of the Npower International Development Fund.

Part of the proceeds from the club's Championship game against Bolton on April 8 at the Keepmoat Stadium will go to the Rovers Go Wild - Project Philippines appeal, particularly three charities - the Dumaguete Kalauman Development Centre, Little children of the Philippines and Victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

Doncaster Rovers Foundation has partnered with Npower and the charities to provide financial and operational support to help them overcome challenges and achieve their aims and objectives.

A group of individuals from the Foundation and Npower, including two students from the Rovers' Education foundation, will travel to the city of Dumaguete in the Philippines for 12-days to provide expertise assistance and pass on the funds raised by the club and Foundation.

The Professional Football Association (PFA) community team, Kite Packaging, LifeSkills, Your Football World and Selby College have also kindly sponsored the two education foundation students' trip, helping to increase revenue for the nominated charities.

An online JustGiving page has been set-up, and there will be a bucket collection, a Man of the Match text vote and players will be wearing t-shirts during the warm-up against Bolton to highlight the project.

Liam Scully, chief executive of Doncaster Rovers Foundation, said:
"The Bolton game will allow Rovers fans to contribute to these fantastic causes and provide us with the support needed to allow our club to make a real difference to people's lives.

“Nothing seems too big a challenge for the team at LifeSkills, and OCS has given some large challenges with very tight deadlines.”
