Gibbs and Brothers in Charity Three Peaks Challenge
Tuesday, 8th Jun 2021 18:32
Blues youngster Liam Gibbs and his brothers Ryan and Jordan are taking part in the Three Peaks Challenge at the end of next week to raise money for the charity Head for Change.
Gibbs, 18, made his first team debut for the Blues in the home game against Charlton in November having come through the academy. Town have offered the Bury St Edmunds-based midfielder a new contract with his current terms up this summer.
The brothers will attempt to climb the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales, Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis and Snowdon, within 24 hours on Friday 18th June.
Given their involvement in football - while Liam is breaking into the firs team with Town, Ryan has played for Needham Market, Haverhill Rovers and Cambridge City and Jordan for Walsham-le-Willows - they felt that Head for Change was the natural choice as their charity.
"We were looking at different charities who we could raise money for and how they can help people that get brain injuries," Liam told the club site.
"We’re all athletic and we’re quite into walking so it was a nice way to complete a challenge and raise money for a charity that need it.
"This was a new charity when we were coming up with the challenge and they hadn’t had any fundraising events for them so far.
"They do great work to help people that are suffering with brain injuries, their families and everyone it affects really.
"A massive thank you to everyone that has donated so far. All donations are hugely appreciated and any more are welcomed.
"We just want to raise as much money as possible to help as many people as possible who could suffer with this in later life."
The brothers have a Just Giving Page which can be found here.

Reflections On the Change of Ownership at Ipswich by PhilR
I am in my late 50s and have supported the club for as long as I can remember.
Power of Motivation by LegendRay
The strangest and most disappointing aspect of this season has been lack of bounce.
Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
