AFC Bournemouth is hoping to get the next generation of football fan hooked to the action at Seward Stadium later this month.

The club will be holding a Help the Hospices Family Day on Saturday, February 25 as Cherries host MK Dons in League One.

In the wake of the success of the Family Football Festival held in October, the club is looking to reward families who get behind the Cherries by offering a ticket for two children and two adults for just £25.

A donation of £5 from every family ticket will be made to the hospices.

The day kicks-off at midday and there will be a number of fun activities and competitions going on around the stadium, including face painting, keepy up challenges and hair braiding.

Cherries have been working with three local hospices this season as part of the Football League’s Help the Hospices campaign, and have been working hard to raise money for Forest Holme, Lewis-Manning and Julia’s House.

Cherries chairman Eddie Mitchell said: “We are really pleased to be able to put on this day for our supporters and the hospices.

“The club has been working closely with the hospices over the course of the season and it has been a privilege to be associated with them and I hope we have helped to highlight the good work that they do.

“It’s also crucial that we make it possible for young supporters and families to come to games, which we are committed to doing and this initiative proves that.”

Tickets can be bought in person from the club store, by telephone on 0844 576 1910 or online at
