TRANMERE Rovers have kicked off their 'Super White Christmas' to help under privileged people across Wirral enjoy the festive season.

Now in its third year, the campaign involves collections, parties and fun events and is launched in line with the club's community ticket initiative, which enables disadvantaged local people to attend games at Prenton Park,

A club spokesman told the Globe: "After the success of last year’s appeal with nearly 100 people participating in our Christmas programmes, we felt that the impact that it had on the community was something we wanted to replicate in 2019."

A Christmas party for children aged 6-14 will take place on Saturday December 21 at 12pm prior to Rovers home match against Accrington Stanley.

On Sunday, December 29, before the home game against Blackpool, Rovers are hosting an event for adults in need.

Adults who are suffering from loneliness, homelessness or would just need cheering up over the Christmas Period who we think would benefit from this event.

The club spokesman added: "We hope to give adults who might not be able to access a hot meal, someone to talk to or a safe place over Christmas with something to look forward to."

The event will be hosted on December 29 for up to 50 adults in need at the Tranmere Rovers Recreation Centre in Borough Road from 12-2pm.

There will be a hot meal, entertainment, and a gift given to each adult in attendance.

As well as a ticket for entry into the Rovers vs Blackpool game held straight after the event, the adults can join in with as much or as little as they would like to.

Places are limited to 50 and the number attending needs to by confirmed by Friday, December 13.

On Christmas Day, care leavers will be welcomed to Prenton Park for Christmas dinner and some festive activities.

Tranmere Rovers managing Director Dawn Tolcher said: "Building on the success of Super White Christmas in previous years, this year we are hosting events for young people in care and those who may not have someone to celebrate Christmas with.

"Every year we are overwhelmed by the amazing response from our fans and the local community who not only provide gift donations but also give up their time to help those most in need during the festive period.

"We see first-hand the impact that Super White Christmas has and hope this year’s appeal will be just as successful as the last in ensuring that everyone can have a happy Christmas."

The club is also looking for donations of non-perishable foods, warm clothing, toiletries and cash donations to be given out at the community events as part of this initiative, and again, you can drop items off at the Tranmere Rovers Club Store or the Recreation Centre.

To cover costs and any additional gifts, the club is looking for a sponsor to get involved in this appeal and to support what we are doing to help our local community that may not get to experience what some of us do at this time of year.
