Town Donate Half-Season Tickets to EACH
Thursday, 20th Jan 2022 14:19
Town have handed two half-season tickets to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) so they can be used by families receiving care and support from the charity.
The Blues have a long-standing relationship with EACH and Billie Nugent, their corporate fundraiser, says the tickets will be greatly enjoyed by families that visit The Treehouse hospice in Ipswich.
“It’s a lovely gesture and one that will be appreciated by our families,” she said. “They will be available on an ad hoc basis so different families will be able to get down to Portman Road.
“It will be a fun opportunity and give them some welcome respite at what is sure to be a challenging time in their lives.”
Before Christmas, in lieu of the usual hospital and hospice visits which couldn't take place due to the pandemic, the Blues players sent a special video message to EACH and also donated money to buy games for the hospice’s PlayStation.
The club donated various raffle prizes last year, including a sought-after hospitality box for EACH’s Happy Christmas Ipswich event at the Regent in December where host Griff Rhys Jones appeared on stage wearing a Town kit donated by the Blues.
“We’ve got a fantastic relationship with our friends at Ipswich Town,” Nugent continued. “Both our organisation and the football club are important parts of the community and it’s great working together on so many things.
“I’m hopeful that relationship will continue to grow and go from strength to strength in 2022.”
Six EACH staff and volunteers took part in a bucket collection at Portman Road prior to the home game against Sunderland in December and raised nearly £700.

The Gamechanger Paradox by DanLyles
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair..."

The M Word by Chickenstochurchmans
As new players and staff have arrived at Portman Road over the last year Town have frequently been described as a ‘massive’ club much to the amusement of older fans like myself.

There is a quote at the back of the Sir Bobby Robson Stand where Sir Bobby says a club is about “the passion, the noise, the feeling of belonging”.
