Harrison was our mascot at the big East Midlands derby between Nottingham Forest and Leicester City, he was nominated for the treat by his dad Russell, and went along to the City Ground with his family.
Here is what they told us about the day,
“I had a amazing day as a Forest mascot, meeting all the players and getting all of their autographs on my shirt.
When I walked out onto the pitch with my favourite player, Karl Darlow, it was a dream come true.
A big thank you to everyone at Free Kicks.
The France family:
“THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for a very memorable evening for Harrison.
Everybody at the club was so welcoming and friendly, as you can see from the photos Harrison met his heroes and couldn’t believe he was there and every now and then had to pinch himself. Players and staff were all so kind to Harrison and in particular the captain, Andy Reid, who joked with him and made him feel very welcome and he had an extremely enjoyable experience. We waited after the game to get photos and autographs and didn’t get home until 11pm.
This was truly a dream come true for Harrison and we are so grateful to you all at Freekicks for making this a reality for him. Harrison’s sister has had a really difficult last 2 years with her health and on numerous occasions we have nearly lost her. We spent 3 months on PICU and then a further 6 months at Rainbows hospice. Her health unfortunately is always in the balance on a daily basis and we have regular visits to hospital/doctors/etc. Harrison has always accompanied his sister to various appointments and unfortunately been exposed to some very sad moments in all our lives.
From the bottom of all our hearts we cannot thank you enough.
Russell, Vanessa, Jordanne , Harrison & Brooke. XXX”
Thank you to all at Forest for their hospitality, especially Caz Nguyen.
