Medlock Charitable Trust boosts Community Foundation ticket scheme

More than 3,000 young people, and their families, in the city will have access to complimentary tickets to watch Bristol Bears thanks to the generosity of the Medlock Charitable Trust.

A donation from the charity will enable every child and young person that partakes in the Community Foundation’s targeted primary and secondary school programmes, from Bristol’s lowest 30% IMD, to celebrate their engagement at Ashton Gate.

Sunday’s game against London Irish will see more than 500 of these young people in attendance, with every one of them also receiving a Bears membership - and Community Development Manager Craig Capel has hailed the generosity of the Medlock Charitable Trust.

“The intention of this scheme is to further support the outcomes of their already positive involvement in more than 10 hours of Bristol Bears Community Foundation programmes, as well as encouraging participants to fall in love with sport and Bristol Bears.

“The move to offer all young people and their parents a free Bristol Bears membership after attending a community game, as a result of this generous offer, will allow us to better understand the value of community programmes and its link to the generation of new fans to Ashton Gate.”

David Medlock from the charity added: “Not all young people have access to the wonderful world of sport and to encourage these young people to participate - what better introduction than watching those brilliant Bristol Bears at the best stadium in the south west.

“Let rugby lead the region in engaging young people. C’mon Bris!”
