THE partnership between Aldershot Town Football Club and the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice will now be launched on Saturday, February 1, as the Shots entertain Boreham Wood in a re-arranged Ryman Premier Division match at the Recreation Ground. (Kick Off 3.00pm).
The launch was due to take place last weekend versus Maidenhead United but the match was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
The launch will be staged at half time on the pitch with representatives present from both organizations. There will then be a presentation made on behalf of the football club, by the Jolly family, in memory of Ray Jolly who died in the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice before Christmas.
The Jolly family are all keen supporters of Aldershot Town FC and through the generosity of friends and relatives a sum of £1,189 was raised. It will be a fitting way to launch the partnership.
The Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice has a local catchment area of 600,000 people and covers the majority of the GU postcodes. The area covers a major part of the football club's supporter base.
The partnership includes a number of initiatives to raise the awareness of the hospice leading up to a charity football match to be staged at the recreation ground at the start of each season. The Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice team is looking forward to a long and successful relationship with Aldershot Town FC.
