We teamed up with Gillingham FC Community Trust for this kick, they were so warm and welcoming to us as well as both of our mascots that we will definitely be linking up with them again next season.
We asked Louise Sayer from the Trust to nominate two deserving young people, that we could donate mascot packages to. She chose Luke and Alicia, who both came along on the day with their families. We met them in the club reception and were invited to join them as they joined in the tour of the stadium, including a visit to the dressing room to meet the players.
Shortly after this, the two were invited to take part in a coaching session on the pitch and were introduced to the watching fans over the tannoy. After receiving a warm round of applause, Alicia and Luke went on to walk out with the Gillingham players ready for kick off and have their pictures taken with the officials and captains.
Our warm thanks go to Louise, Val and all at Gillingham FC and Trust for helping to arrange this memorable day for our mascots.
