The Billy Bantams Penalty Shoot-out is an initiative launched by the foundation which provides a sponsorship programme, free of charge (inclusive of all equipment) to schools in our community. We will run an initial assembly presentation to your school, laying out the initiative, which will then eventually culminate with a sponsored penalty shoot-out.
After this initial assembly, children will have a couple weeks to collect sponsors from family and friends to take 4 penalties against our very own Billy Bantam, the Bradford City Football mascot.
All children taking part will be rewarded a medal for their participation, as well as a Bradford City branded pump-bag.
If you raise £10...
Another medal will be rewarded to all those who have raised more than £10.00 to celebrate their efforts!
If you raise £20...
All of our fundraising super-stars who have raised more than £20.00 will receive a Bradford City football alongside a medal for their accomplishment.
Reward For The Most Money Raised...
The star of the show will received an autographed football by some of our players! They'll also receive all of the above.
All rewards are funded by the Community Foundation!
Shibden Head Primary Academy, in Queensbury, had a great sponsored shoot-out in March 2019, raising a whopping total of almost £9,000! This is a fantastic achievement for all of the pupils, and of course, the school, who receive half of the monies raised. The other half is put back into the community foundation for future community projects. The school really got behind this sponsored event, and thoroughly enjoyed their day.
Here's a picture of Ian Ormandroyd awarding the winning prize, a signed football, to one of the pupils.
"Bradford City FC Community Foundation held a sponsored penalty shootout at our school which raised over £4k for the school. The organisation was excellent and the day ran smoothly and professionally and the children all enjoyed taking part and were very proud of their medals. An excellent community event which I cannot recommend enough" - St Johns Primary.
