Lewes Football Club is proud to support Friends of the Elderly’s Be a Friend campaign and is inviting fans to bring an older friend, neighbour or relative for free, to the last home game of the season against Leatherhead on Saturday, April 18th.
The Club is inviting the over 65’s to join David Arnold – local historian, newspaper columnist and Rook’s Supporters Club committee member – to share stories about Lewes FC and the local area, as a way of celebrating the last home game of the 2014/15 Ryman Premier League season.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served in the boardroom from 12:00pm until12:45pm; guests will then have the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere at the famous Dripping Pan Stadium before the match kicks off at 3pm.
Rook’s Commercial Manager Kevin Miller said, “We are absolutely delighted to be working with Friends of the Elderly on this special day. As a fan-owned, not-for-profit Community Club, we exist to serve the whole community, and we are looking forward to welcoming our local senior citizens and to hear some great stories. Let’s hope that the team can sign off our home campaign in style and give them a win to savour!”
Friends of the Elderly’s Chief Executive, Steve Allen added, “We are thrilled that Lewes FC has come forward to support our Be a Friend campaign, which aims to end loneliness and isolation in the older population. Football is a wonderful way of bringing people together – something as simple as a brief chat at the game can make the world of difference to an older person who has no family and friends nearby.”
For more information and to reserve your place please contact Kevin Miller on 01273 470820 between 10 am and 5pm, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.lewesfc.com. Places are limited to just twenty people and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. Only one complimentary place will be offered per paying adult. Adult prices are £11, Concessions £6 and Kids under 16 go free.
Deadline for registering is Wednesday, April 15.
Together we can make a difference to the lives of older people where we live. Be a Friend today with Friends of the Elderly and Lewes FC.
