Our second Premier League Kick of the season was at Upton Park, the home of West Ham United. Tom Dowsett was our guest for the day for the match with Birmingham City and was nominated by his brother Chris. Chris was part of the team that walked from Peterborough to Nottingham last year helping to raise over £5,500 in the process.
Tom and his family were treated to lunch in The Legends Lounge where they were entertained by ex-West Ham players Phil Parkes and Mark Ward. We also organised for current Hammers and Wales star Jack Collison to pop into the Lounge to say hello and pose for pictures and sign Tom’s programme.
After the meal they all took their executive seats in the West Stand to watch the match. Unfortunately West Ham lost the game 1-0 but hopefully that didn’t spoil the day!
