Thanks to the agreement of our owners, The Hadley Group, our home match on 6th September v. Hampton will be a 'Pay What You Like' Day!

PAY WHAT YOU LIKE on Non League Day!
Yes! You read that correct!
This Saturday 6th September, we host Hampton & Richmond Borough, in a Ryman League Premier Division match to celebrate Non League Day. All we ask is for you to make a donation at the turnstile as you come through them, or on the way out, into our collection buckets.

We hope that all of our regular fans will make their usual match day admission contribution, as we still have to cover our matchday costs, and pay the players, staff and match officials. BUT...after these costs have been covered Hadley have agreed to make a, hopefully, substantial donation to charity...depending on how generous the crowd are!

We have decided to support the Worshipful Mayor of Southwark, Cllr. Sunil Chopra, who will be attending the game, & backing his charitable work by handing over our fundraising to him, in support of his two chosen homeless charities for his year of office, which are The Robe Project &
UK Homes 4 Heroes.

As if all of this wasn't exciting enough, we have been honoured by being chosen as one of four partners, in association with Non League Day, of the footballing anti-racism & discrimination Kick It Out campaign, to make our match a true community day, as part of their 'Season of Action' campaign. As part of Non League Day they have chosen only four fixtures, so we are extremely lucky to have been nominated by them to spread their important message; the other Clubs being Marine; Blyth Spartans & Lewes. Fans will also be marching to the game from Peckham Rye at 2pm

And as it is a community day at the ground let's make it as colourful as possible. Bring your balloons and banners. Splash on the facepaint. And why not bring along flags of your country, to spread the message that anyone is welcome at Champion Hill, no matter where you are from, regardless of race, creed, colour or sexuality. The only thing we care about at Dulwich Hamlet is that you are Pink & Blue!

Finally, all the players and management have agreed to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge in support of ALS and need sponsors who will be able
to soak their chosen player/coach/manager.

So that's Saturday 6th September..pay what you like, at home to Hampton & Richmond Borough. Tell everyone you know, to create a true Non League carnival experience, and with a bit of luck as all of our fans help spread the word, we can set a new Dulwich Hamlet attendance record, at our current ground, which is currently 1,835; when we hosted Southport in the First Round Proper of the FA Cup, back in 1998.
