A message from our Club Captain, David Gillies;
As many of you will be aware I have chosen Albion in the Community as my Captain’s charity and in particular one aspect of their work Football for people with autism.
The funds that I will raise will go towards AITC putting on football sessions for people with autism at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre in Lancing on a bi-weekly basis. AITC is providing a growing number of people with the chance to play the sport they love in a safe and supportive environment. I have a number of friends and colleagues who have children with autism and have seen first-hand how rewarding and challenging this can be. With your support I would love to raise funds that can make such a positive impact on their lives and of course their parents lives as well. I am pleased to say that Richard Burgess a member of our Green-keeping staff has agreed to run the Brighton Half Marathon with me on Sunday 24 February and together we hope to raise £500 towards the overall total of £4000 to run bi-weekly sessions in a year.
