A CAROL concert will be held at Rovers' Prenton Park ground as part of the club's Christmas weekend celebrations.

The free family event, taking place on Saturday December 23 in the Recreation Centre, is part of the club’s Super White Christmas initiative, with a whole host of events and activities organised for the benefit of the local community over the festive period.

The event starts at 5.30pm and includes a nativity performance as well as the carol concert itself.

Refreshments will be available, along with kids' craft – and a certain gentleman from the North Pole is expected to make an appearance to meet the children.

Tickets, which are free, are available now and can be ordered by emailing ellisp@tranmererovers.co.uk.

In addition to the carol concert, the club is hosting a Christmas party for adults suffering with dementia on Thursday, December 21.

This follows the successful children's party that was held last month for youngsters associated with charities the club supports throughout the year.

On Christmas Day, Rovers will host the Wirral Christmas Dinner, for 16-25 year olds who have left the care system but are now living independently with no family system.

On Boxing Day, Prenton Park welcomes members of the local homeless community and those who are isolated at Christmas for a hot meal and to enjoy the football.

Club chairman Mark Palios, says of the Super White Christmas initiative: "For most of us, we take for granted the joy around Christmas whereas others are less fortunate.

"Tranmere Rovers wants to lead a campaign that brings some of that joy to the local community who are lonely, homeless or in financial difficulty."
