No Portman Road Visit for Rudolph
Monday, 30th Nov 2020 11:31
Rudolph’s annual charity tour of Ipswich, organised by Ipswich Greyfriars Round Table, is now only days away from setting off around town but this year won’t be taking in Portman Road.
The recognisable float, marking its 50th year this winter, will set off on its journey on 3rd December and will tour the town until 23rd December.
Glenn Williamson, chairman of Ipswich Greyfriars Round Table and a North Stand season ticket holder, said: “Sadly this year we can’t bring Rudolph and Santa to Portman Road but we hope all Town fans can get behind supporting this campaign by seeing us on one of the routes or donating by text or online, all money raised will support local charities and worthy causes.”
Last year more than £18,000 was raised of which £5,000 was donated to SERV Suffolk & Cambridgeshire (SERVSC) to help purchase a new bike to assist with delivering blood and other essential products to five local hospitals, two air ambulance services, hospices and pharmacies.
Also £5,000 was donated to SARS (Suffolk Accident Rescue Service) for crucial life-saving equipment and £5,000 to Robin Cancer Trust raising awareness of testicular and ovarian germ cell cancers.
If you are a local charity/worthy cause and would like to be considered for this year’s funds please contact Ipswich Round Table via firstname.lastname@example.org.

It's All Going Wrong, Again by sam_n1
There seems to be a pattern emerging of a consistent fall in form as this season starts to get up and running, especially during the Christmas fixtures. But who or what is down to?
The Grim Experience of Becoming a Socially-Distanced Supporter by chazza
Second only to the terrible the footballing performance against Portsmouth comes the grim experience of becoming a 'socially-distanced' supporter.
Season's Beatings by Moggasknockdown
It is a bitterly disheartening experience supporting Ipswich. At every sliding doors moment in our recent history we have taken the wrong path, at every opportunity for schadenfreude an ex-player will decisively score, or create or generally remind us all that they are happier now, away from the depressing, soul-destroying experience that was their Ipswich career.
