BRADFORD City will promote its work in the community at an event held at a city school as part of a national scheme.

The club's Community Foundation will showcase its work as part of the first-ever English Football League (EFL's) Day of Action.

This sees all 72 EFL Clubs, from the Championship to League Two, hold events across the country in their respective communities on Tuesday, April 25.

The Bantams' event will include a day of activities at Shirley Manor Primary Academy, Methuen Oval, Wyke. The club's mascot, Billy Bantam, is also expected to make an appearance alongside an unnamed member of City's first-team squad.

The group has held football coaching and mentoring sessions with pupils at the school as part of its community work.

The foundation, which was set up in 1988, is the community charity of Bradford City Football Club. It provides football coaching and education to young people, works with youngsters aged between 16 and 18 on the National Citizen Service and has done several projects in the local community.

Ian Ormondroyd, Bradford City Community Foundation manager and former Bantams striker, said: "It is part of our community day work.

"This is the first year it has been done.

"It will be a good opportunity to promote what we do.

"It showcases the good work that the community groups do.

"It is a good idea to have a day of action at clubs across the country too. All of the other clubs are doing different things.

"The event at Shirley Manor Primary Academy is not for the public, but we will hope to get as many of the school's pupils and parents there as we can. We have concentrated our day at Shirley Manor.

"We are hoping to have a player come along too.

"It will give us a chance at the Foundation to push our work, we are often an unknown secret at the club."

City's Foundation's other work includes coaching and mentoring at around 50 schools across the Bradford district each week.

It also offers penalty shoot-outs, traineeships, the National Citizens Service programme, Futsal, community projects and Bradford Disability Football Club.

It now has more than 20 members of staff working within the Bradford district.

The foundation's has included helping to fund the Unheard Voices project through a £40,100 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

This project produced a book and 15-minute film on the residents' experiences on the day of the Bradford City Fire Disaster at Valley Parade on May 11, 1985.

The EFL's Community Day of Action aims to promote the projects they deliver which focus on raising aspirations by tackling some of society's greater goals through participation in sport, health, education and community engagement programmes.
