Lovett, Doyle-Hayes & Crowe visit Acorns

29 November 2019

Rhys Lovett and Jake Doyle-Hayes joined Head of Medical Gavin Crowe on a visit to Acorns Children's Hospice in Worcester on Thursday.

Acorns, who were the club's official charity partner during the 2018/19 season, provide care to life limited and life threatened children and support for their families.

Their Worcester hospice is one of three across the West Midlands providing specialist palliative care and support for children and families.

Rhys, Jake and Gavin spent time with some of the children at the hospice, taking part in arts & crafts, playing football and other games on their visit.

The charity were also presented with a shirt that had been signed by the squad. 

Mel Hall, Area Fundraiser for Acorns, said: “We were thrilled to welcome players from Cheltenham Town to Acorns for the Three Counties. The children had a great time and the lads really got stuck into Christmas craft making. The football session was a particularly special moment, and we’re so grateful to Rhys, Luke and Club physio Gavin for taking the time out of their busy schedules to come and visit Cheltenham’s local children’s hospice.

“Cheltenham Town are longstanding supporters of Acorns and always go above and beyond to help raise not just awareness of our work but vital funds to help us to continue caring for children and families across Cheltenham and the West Midlands.”
