Time: - | Venue:

We’ve got two exciting education initiatives for schools which are being run by our Community Foundation – Penalty Shootout and our Community Hub.

The Billy Bantam penalty shootout is for schools to raise funds for school. Children in schools raise sponsor money and then get the opportunity to take four penalty kicks against Billy Bantam.  The children win prizes provided by us depending on how much money they raise, with the child raising the most receiving a signed ball.  A school last month raised £8,000, and the proceeds are split 50/50 with the school and ourselves to cover the prizes and staff.

Our Community Hub supports schools in literacy, numeracy, healthy living and other PHSE topics. The children get a ground tour of Bradford City on arrival and then do the work in our classroom space.
