Bristol Rovers Women’s (AKA the 'Gas Girls') are delighted to launch a special edition away kit in partnership with St Paul’s Carnival. The brand-new away kit is the third kit where the ‘Gas Girls’ have donated the front of shirt sponsorship to an organisation or charity that fit within the ethos, culture and values of the football club.
We are also delighted to have reggae musician, television personality, celebrity chef, author and Chair of St Pauls Carnival, Levi Roots supporting the launch of the new shirt and partnership.
St Pauls Carnival is a celebration of Afro Caribbean culture and is an event where every float, stage, performer and person tells a story. A story of music, dance and community. Since its beginnings back in 1968, St Pauls Carnival has grown in size and reputation to become one of the UK’s most accessible and inclusive events, attracting thousands of people to the area. Carnival 365 brings the history and heritage of Carnival to communities all year round while their Schools Programme and community work sees the history and traditions of Carnival bring people together throughout the year.
Bristol Rovers Women’s FC will be working alongside St Pauls Carnival to support their community initiatives, engage with more young people within the area through football and be a part of the Carnival celebrations in 2023.
Executive Director of St Pauls Carnival, LaToyah McAllister-Jones said, "We are so proud to collaborate with the Gas Girls on this new kit. To be supported by such a great Bristol institution is fantastic and a great example of city-wide partnership. Big thanks to the Bristol Rovers Community Trust for their support."
Bristol Rovers Community Trust CEO Adam Tutton added, "I am delighted that St Pauls Carnival and the Gas Girls have been able to collaborate on this beautiful new football kit. By working together we hope to engage with more young people within St Pauls as well as offer our support to Carnival 2023"
The brand-new special edition shirt will be available to purchase very soon.
