Doncaster Rovers have pledged to give child cruelty the red card as the Club joins forces with the NSPCC to raise money for children and young people.

During the next 12 months, Rovers will help to raise much-needed funds for the children's charity as well as helping to raise awareness of children's issues and the work the charity does in Doncaster.

To start this partnership, Rovers are to go green at the home clash against Crystal Palace, with the squad turning out in green and white hoops for the first time at home in their history.

The shirts will have the NSPCC logo on the front instead of our usual Wright Investments logo (thanks to the Club's shirt sponsor for giving their blessing as part of their support for the project). This has taken a great amount of work to get all the permissions in place, such as from the FA and the Football League. The teams will be lead out on to the pitch by 22 green shirted Junior Rovers.

In fact it is going to be a totally green day with a special collectors programme in, yes; you got it, green plus a full one week green makeover of the Doncaster Rovers Official Website.

The green and white shirts will be a collector's dream, with only 30 being produced, so Rovers will auction following the game, individual shirts signed by its respective player at various events and on EBay, with all proceeds going to the NSPCC.

It's going to be one special day at Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday 25th April, with face painters, speed shooting and other events plus coaching sessions from 11.30 'til 1.30 for all the family on the Astroturf pitches.

The NSPCC runs a number of therapeutic and counselling services in South Yorkshire, including the Doncaster Therapeutic Support Team where children's workers provide support to children, their carers and families, as well as offering advice, information and counselling support to parents.

Dave Morris Chief Executive "We are delighted and proud that the NSPCC have agreed to be our nominated charity and look forward to a long partnership with them. The charity has a wonderful reputation for the work it does with children both nationally and locally. The recent events' concerning the welfare of children in Doncaster makes the relationship all the more important and we hope we can work closely with the local projects to help in fund raising and child protection awareness. I hope we can all work together to try to fulfil the NSPCC commitment that "cruelty to children must stop. Full stop".

Claire Reading, NSPCC community fundraising manager said: "It's great that Doncaster Rovers are 'going green' for the NSPCC and are so committed to raising vital funds to support children and young people."

"The green and white NSPCC shirts are complete one-offs and such a unique idea will help to raise awareness of the club's support for the charity as well as giving us the opportunity to tell more people about the work we do for children in Doncaster and the wider region."

"We're really grateful to our local volunteers and supporters whose enthusiasm and commitment will help to make Saturday's match such a fantastic community event."

Superb. What a great gesture from not only the club but also the current shirt sponsor also.<br /><br />Doing things like this can act as a great stimulus for other people to stop and think and then maybe make that phone call, drop some change in to a collection tin or make their own continued contribution.<br /><br />Lets just hope that the NSPCC put the money to some good use and provide the financial clout to take thos children who need it away to a safer place, but also provide the strongest pressure and lobbying to parliament to increase the sentences to those who abuse children.<br /><br />Keep up the good work.
