Every year we link up with the Swindon Downs Syndrome Group, who are always able to nominate some football-mad youngsters to be Swindon Town mascots. This year was no exception and Imogen, 10, and Robert, 8, were this year’s recipients of our donated packages.
We met up with both families prior to them heading in to the enjoy the start of their hospitality; both children loved their brand new football kits and were very excited about what lay ahead of them. We caught up with them again just as they came off the pitch after leading the teams out before kickoff, and they happily posed for some photos for us.
Huge thanks to Jo Messenger from Swindon Downs Group for nominating them, and Rachel, George and Brenda at Swindon Town FC, for looking after Imogen and Robert so well.
