Tranmere disabled supporters’ fundraising tin challenge

The Tranmere Rovers Disabled Supporters’ Association (DSA) charitable arm, the Lee Knight foundation has done some amazing work at Prenton Park for disabled fans in recent years.

It has been behind three key fundraising drives for disabled fans:

  • The plastic dugouts for disabled fans in the Bebington Paddock – ensuring spectators don’t get soaked through in inclement weather
  • Raising £10,000 for the elevated seating for disabled supporters at the front of the Kop
  • The lift up to the first floor of the Main Stand and widening the seating options for disabled fans

Tranmere fan and committee member, Ellis Palmer (pictured below) told, “As a committee, we are working at the moment to decide what our priorities should be – but, after a recent meeting, it’s clear that something we are keen to support is the provision of audio-described commentary for blind and visually-impaired supporters.

“Sight loss should not stop people from doing the things they love – like going to football with friends and family – and we’re very keen to ensure that the adjustments are in place so blind and visually impaired supporters can enjoy cheering on the Rovers the same as everyone else.”

The Tranmere Rovers DSA is running a £100 in 100 days fundraising tin challenge between now and October/November.

Ellis explained, “The idea is simple: take a tin from us, fill it with whatever change you have or a pound a day, and hand it back to us after 100 days or whenever it’s full. 

“The funds will be used towards supporting disabled members of the Super White Army and the broader local community. There will be Rovers-themed prizes to be won!”
