Hartlepool Borough Council have added their weight to the outpouring of support for the Football Club.
Anyone attending the Pools v Wrexham match on Saturday 20th January (3pm Kick Off) will be able to park around the town for free.
Hartlepool Borough Council has agreed to waive town centre parking charges from 8am – 6pm on Saturday in support of the Football Club.
Councillor Christopher Akers-Belcher, the Leader of the Council, said: “The Council has been working hard behind the scenes to try to help the club overcome the severe financial difficulties that it currently faces.
“Work continues to try to secure its long-term future, but in the meantime the Council hopes this gesture will help to boost fundraising efforts that aim to enable the club to pay its bills in the short-term.
“All we are asking is that people using Council-managed town centre car parks and on-street pay and display parking donate what they would have paid in charges to the online appeal instead.”
The Council-managed car parks that will be free from 8am - 6pm are the multi-storey, the basement, Waldon Street, Roker Street, West Side, Open Market, Eastside, Eden Street, the transport interchange, Mill House, Dover Street, Andrew Street, Park Road (One Life) and Victoria Road.
These have a total of 1,908 spaces. A further 57 on-street pay and display spaces in Tower Street, Gainford Street, Whitby Street and at the rear of York Road will also be free. The offer does not include resident and business permit-controlled parking areas.
