Two local Ukranian families attended Saturday's game v Bolton courtesy of the CAST Ticketbank initiative. Despite the result they thoroughly enjoyed the occasion and would love to come again. From their position in the Upper West Stand they had a great view of Albie Morgan's goal.
In celebration of CAST's tenth birthday we launched the CAST Ticketbank in December to make available free match tickets for people who would like to come to The Valley and support Charlton but cannot afford to do so. So far we have been able to welcome 42 people to the stadium.
CAST members can nominate individuals or families by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We don't require any information beyond names, categories (eg adult, senior, under 11 etc) and desired seat positions, There is no need to make any justification for your nomination - we trust CAST members to use this fund appropriately and with discretion. (If there appears to be another eligible source of tickets - eg The CACT Community 500 initiative- we will explore that, but CACT tickets are primarily only for users of community groups that they work with.)
The CAST ticketbank is funded from donations and CAST reserves.
Nominations are now sought for the February fixtures against Lincoln and Sheffield Wednesday. It is fine to nominate people more than once.
The sooner you can put names forward to email@example.com the sooner we can get the tickets distributed.
