Robins Support CCP Charity Shield

17 July 2014

Craig Braham-Barrett and Joe Hanks were on hand to support the CCP Charity Shield this week.

The CCP (County Community Projects) Charity Shield took place on Wednesday afternoon and the Robins were there to support.

Both Craig Braham-Barrett and Joe Hanks took time out to spend time in Quedgeley to help support the event and hand out medals to the finalists. They were working alongside Arsenal and England legend Tony Adams who was also there to help support the event.

County Community Projects exists to improve the lives of children, young people, families and vulnerable adults with multiple and complex needs. They are based in Cheltenham but their fantastic work stretches all over Gloucestershire and Worcestershire.

Their Charity Shield event on Wednesday brought together many people from many walks of life to help promote teamwork, but most of all to enjoy themselves in a footballing environment.

"Cheltenham Town have had a close relationship with CCP for a while not and we are big supporters of their work," said media & communications officer James Brown.

"The CCP staff and volunteers did a great job of organising their event and I'd like to thank Nick Anthony for inviting us along on the day. Both Craig and Joe understand more than most what football and sport can do to bring people together and that's why we value our relationship with CCP so highly. We look forward to supporting future events too."

The tournament itself was won on a nail-biting penalty shoot-out by a team representing Gloucestershire Police but we'd like to congratulate all the teams involved.
