On October 18th Free Kicks delivered two ‘firsts’…our first female recipients of a special day out and also our first adult!
We were contacted by Melanie at the Tennyson Lodge, March, to see if we could help make a dream come true. Andrew, 43, has Down’s Syndrome and had said to the staff at the centre that he had always wanted to watch his favourite team, Norwich City, play at Carrow Road but had never been able to go.
Always up for a challenge, we managed to arrange a ‘Celebration’ package for Andrew at the fixture against Doncaster Rovers which meant, as well as watching the match, he was treated like a VIP for the day.
As well as dinner in Delia Smith’s restaurant, champagne, a personalised cake and his name up on the scoreboard, Andrew witnessed Norwich winning the game in the very last minute…the perfect end to the perfect day!
