Kip On The Essar Kop a great success!

8 October 2018

Kip On The Essar Kop took place on Friday and proved to be a successful event for everyone involved. Over 50 people gave up their Friday night to raise very important money and awareness for several local charities.

The participants arrived from 5pm at Prenton Park and that was where they stayed until 6am the following morning, some of who, travelled to Morecambe a few hours later for our game at 3pm!

Some brought sleeping bags, others brought cardboard boxes to help shelter themselves from a bitterly cold night. Volunteers kindly stayed on hand to give soup and hot drinks to everyone, in order to keep body heat at a safe temperature.

So far, over £10,000 has been raised by sponsors, businesses and participants and we would like to wholeheartedly thank everyone who has contributed in any way, either monetary or with their time, for making this event so worthwhile and successful.

Tranmere Rovers are a Club rooted to the local community and we hope events like these go a long way to show our support for local charities, businesses and people.
