Merry Christmas Mick and Terry!

In the weeks before Christmas TWTD Message Boarders decided to buy presents for manager Mick McCarthy and his assistant Terry Connor as a mark of a appreciation for the job they’re doing with the Blues. Marc Newby - who posts as chrisswailes - took a collection - with any additional funds going to charity - and this morning he presented the Town bosses with their gifts at the training ground. He tells us how it went.
Mick and Terry seemed very surprised and happy, although Mick has a bit of a cold, so he didn't want to shake my hand!
Mick joked and asked "Should I share this with the players, yeah?”. He then went on to say, ”I'm glad that [the supporters] are happy with us.”
I explained the story behind it and how we wanted to show our appreciation and how the rest of the money was going to EACH and the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
He seemed over the moon with that, and went on to say how fantastic EACH is and that I should have a look round. I've arranged to go on a tour in the new year.
I then met Patsy from EACH who thanked us all and accepted the cheque on behalf of SBRF as well. There were two cheques for £55, the presents, a mixture of beer, port and cheese, cost £57. If you missed the collection being taken, feel free to make a donation to EACH here or the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation here.
