Dale supporters might notice something different about the kit that Dale are wearing in this weekend’s game with Middlesbrough.
As a one off, the Dale side will be playing in green socks. The socks will be worn to highlight the fact that Springhill Hospice is the chosen charity of the Dale Trust for the forthcoming season.
The socks have been very kindly donated by club sponsor JD Sports after an urgent appeal from the club.
Green is a colour well associated with Springhill Hospice, and a number of “Go Green” events have been held around the town over the past year to raise funds for the Hospice, with the Trust planning a couple of fund raising activities themselves. It is vital that the Hospice raises funds that are spent on specialist staff, food, drugs, heating, lighting and general maintenance of the Hospice building and services.
