Warriors have unveiled the new Acorns Charity Matchday Shirt which will be worn by the players in their Aviva Premiership clash with Bath Rugby at Sixways on Friday 5 January (kick-off 7.45pm).
The new shirt is all white and incorporates acorns spread out over the shirt, in blue and gold to represent Warriors, and in orange to represent the charity.
The limited-edition shirts are available to pre-order from the Sixways Store in the run-up to the big game, with all proceeds going to Acorns to help support the charity’s work providing care for local life-limited and life-threatened children, young people and their families.
As well as the replicas, fans will be able to get their hands on the match-worn shirts by requesting a silent auction form from the Club, with all proceeds raised again going to Acorns.
Warriors hooker Niall Annett, who is the Club’s Acorns Player Ambassador, said: “The charity does incredible work in helping these children and myself and the lads regularly drop down to give them a hand and witness first-hand the fantastic work that they do.
“The game against Bath will be a special occasion and I’m sure everyone will get behind this great cause to help make a real difference to the lives of these children.”
A number of fundraising activities will take place at the Charity Matchday as Warriors go head-to-head with Bath at 7.45pm.
The Club have allocated a number of tickets for the match at the exclusive Acorns rate of £30 for Adults and £20 for Under 16s which includes use of the Charity Lounge and a complementary meal with a proportion of each ticket sold going directly to Acorns.
The Acorns tickets for the Charity Matchday will be sold on a first-come first-served basis, and can be purchased by visiting www.acorns.org.uk/warriors, emailing email@example.com or calling 01564 825000.

In the past year, Acorns for the Three Counties has cared for over 210 children and more than 270 families, including those who are bereaved. It costs Acorns nearly £10 million every year to provide these services and it relies on the generosity of the public for the majority of this amount.
