Wingate and Finchley will hold their annual community day on Saturday as the Blues welcome AFC Hornchurch to the Harry Abrahams Stadium in the Ryman Premier.

The event is a fundraiser for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice which is based in Barnet.

The club will allow supporters to ‘pay what you want’ when purchasing tickets and several activities, including penalty shoot-out competitions and a special fundraising raffle, will be held.

Community manager Mike Bayly said: “The Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice is a very important local organisation and one we are proud to raise money for.”

A group of Wingate fans will be walking 13 miles to the away fixture with Dulwich Hamlet on Saturday, April 5 to raise money for the Hospice.

“We held a walk a few years ago to Waltham Abbey FC which was a lot of fun, so it made sense to do something similar. We wanted to make the walk a reasonable challenge but not so excessive that younger or older supporters would be excluded,” said Bailey.

“Dulwich Hamlet FC have also allowed us hold a half-time bucket collection at their ground, for which we are immensely grateful.”

On the pitch, Wingate suffered a heavy 7-0 defeat against Lowestoft Town in the Ryman Premier on Tuesday.

On Saturday the Blues played out a 2-2 draw against Cray Wanderers.

Marc Weatherstone and a goal from Craig Davies earned a share of the points for Wingate.
