Club Doncaster Foundation Walk to the Stadium

7 May 2019

More than 130 combined refugees and Fit Rovers participants took part in a walk to the Keepmoat Stadium event on Saturday May 4, in recognition of Amnesty International’s Football Welcomes campaign.

Local refugee and asylum seekers from the Doncaster Area walked to the stadium from the town centre, having been invited to see Doncaster Rovers take on Coventry City in the final game of the 2018/19 Sky Bet League One season.

The group, which saw a total of 46 refugees walk to the Keepmoat Stadium, were met by members of the Foundation’s health and wellbeing project, Fit Rovers, before seeing Rovers secure a victory over Coventry City.

Having supported the local refugee group on a number of activities and opportunities throughout the year, staff members of the Foundation saw it fitting to invite the refugees to watch Rovers in their final game of the regular season, and to integrate them into the EFL Family Club of the Year, who made them welcome on Saturday evening.
