BIG COAT DAY
FC United’s annual Big Coat Day will take place at the Chester game on 5th January.
There will be a collection of warm clothing at this game to go towards what has now become an event that helps define what this club is all about.
We are looking to collect both male and female clothes and all we ask is they are in good condition and are suitable for the circumstances. These vital contributions will help us make up packs to also include toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, food and soft drinks.
We advise that all supporters read the travel information and make a note of where traffic marshals will ask you to refrain from parking.
