Josh Jackman explains: “In April 2021, my friend and colleague, Paul Smith was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease, and since his diagnosis he has faced many challenges and most recently, after now losing the function of both his arms and legs, requires a move from his first-floor apartment where he currently has to spend up to several weeks in a single room.
“Paul and his family have secured a new property but require funds to adapt this to become accessible for Paul’s needs, but unfortunately do not have the funds required.”
The challenge of ‘Dribble for MND’ involves teams of 5 players. Each player will dribble a football the length of the football pitch, negotiating 3 sets of obstacles along the way, before passing to a teammate who will then do the same, until all 5 players have completed the length of the pitch.
Josh will be organising teams of players to take part after the Aveley game, and we would like to offer you, the fantastic Slough Town FC family, the chance to do the same. You too can be on the pitch with a football at Arbour Park just like the players that you support week in, week out.
This challenge is open to anyone regardless of age, gender or ability. You will need to wear the correct footwear for the event and as this is a charity fundraiser, we will be asking for a donation of £10 from each player. The idea is to have fun, enjoy the challenge and help a great cause.
If you do not want to take part in the challenge then Dribble for MND will have a stand at the game, and will have a bucket collection on the day.
For further details, speak with Ade Gomm at either of our matches on Saturday or Tuesday, or email: email@example.com
