The players’ match kit will have a poppy attached to the vest, while all service personnel will be granted free entry to the game on the production of valid ID.

This week, Giants CEO, John Dwan, and Business Manager, James Gordon, visited Canada Street in Manchester which has been transformed in to a “war veterans village”

The project has featured on BBC One’s DIY SOS, presented by Nick Knowles, and has been supported by Manchester City Council, and charities Walking With The Wounded and Haig Housing.

The club plans to do additional work with the Walking With The Wounded charity throughout the season.

James said: “It was astonishing and a privilege to see the work and transformation that has gone on to make these homes fit for heroes. What is even more inspiring is the number of people who have voluntarily given up their time, resources and materials to make this project a reality.

“It is clear that this is a project that can be replicated up and down the country, and hopefully we can help in our own small way to raise money for the Walking With The Wounded charity.”

The free entry for service personnel is available at this Sunday’s game against Surrey Scorchers, on the door only.
