Christmas Charity Camp 2015 raises £1900

Sixteen coaches gave their time, 60 children attended and made donations and the facility gave the pitch. The charity this year was close to our hearts.  Following the tragic accident at Old Loughts in December where 23 year old Tom Wilson received a fatal blow to the head from a stick during a training game the money raised will go to the Charity chosen by his family. The camp was on the day of his funeral and in recognition the children and coaches put purple and white tinsel on thier sticks and posted a photo to #sticksoutfortom.  The camp raised £1900 and we would like to thank all those that took part.

COMMENTS FROM CAMPERS

"Hi Liz

I just wanted to say how much Johnny enjoyed his first Southgate experience today.

The camp was great fun and they seemed to cover a lot of ground.

Drew and the other coaches are a really super bunch. Everyone was very welcome and the facilities with the club house and pitches are really amazing.

Regards

Roberta"

Dear Liz

Just a short note...I have been chatting to Max during the drive home. 

Max thoroughly enjoyed the last two days... he thought the coaching was excellent, he felt he learnt a lot, he enjoyed the drills and matches, worked hard, had fun and came away full of enthusiasm. It was great to hear.

Max has Essex JAC training tonight, and although he's tired he's keen to get back on the pitch! 

He's now looking forward to the summer camp. 

Please pass on my thanks to John and Jonty...Max really enjoyed and benefited from the experience.

Kind regards

Tony
