For several years now we have worked with Nelson’s Journey, a charity based in Norwich which is dedicated to supporting bereaved children and young people throughout Norfolk. Ryan Doubleday from the charity has nominated several children to us who have gone on to enjoy a mascot experience at Norwich City FC.
The second of this season’s recipients was Freddie, who is a huge Norwich fan…so much so that he knows all the player’s stats on FIFA! We were more than happy to arrange a day out for him, and reserved the fixture against Watford for him.
He came along to the game with his mum, Mairead, and enjoyed taking part in all the usual mascot activities including meeting the team and walking out onto the pitch ahead of kick-off with them. He also received a new Norwich City kit to wear on the day and keep afterwards.
Our thanks go to Ryan and to Gemma Tracy from the football club, for helping us to arrange this memorable day for Freddie.
