Cheltenham Town stars have come up with a very special Christmas present for the local community – a day to help charity.Cheltenham Town players will give up a few hours of their day later today to work as volunteers for any local charity that needs help.
“We are all very aware of how much support we get from our fans and the community and this is our way of saying thanks,” says Robins Manager Mark Yates.
“It’s so important that we as a club and the team as a group give as much as possible to those who need help or support in one way or another. Christmas is the time for giving and we want to play our part,” adds Yates.
Darren Carter and Keith Lowe will be heading to the National Star College to help the students with their business enterprises in the run up to Christmas. Alan Bennett and Sam Deering are off to the Everyman Theatre to meet Aladdin and the gang. Steve Elliott and Jermaine McGlashan are helping some charity workers pack Christmas Hampers with the County Community Projects. Russ Penn and Scott Brown are heading to The Aviator Pub to help The Butterfly Garden with their Christmas games. The rest of the squad are heading to Gloucester Royal hospital to visit the Children's Ward there and to hand out presents alongside the Pied Piper Appeal.
We will bring you pictures and updates throughout the day of the boys getting in the festive spirit.
