A young Bristol City supporter enjoyed the best half-term treat when he was invited to the club’s Failand training ground this week.
Ten-year-old Joseph, from Downend in Bristol, is currently staying with his family for respite at Children’s Hospice South West at Charlton Farm.
A massive supporter of the club, Children’s Hospice used their link up with Bristol City to make a young boy’s dream come true.
Joseph was given the chance to head up to the training ground and have lunch with members of the first-team squad.
He was also able to pose for pictures and gather autographs, as well as meeting new head coach Lee Johnson.
Joseph – who was joined by his mum Elise – was handed a signed shirt by the team as a special memento his afternoon with the Championship club.
He said: “It was the best day ever. I can’t wait to go back to school and show all my friends the shirt!”
Children’s Hospice South West provides care for life-limited children and their families from across the region.
During 2015/16, the club has teamed up with the Charlton Farm hospice, based just a short drive from the club’s training base in Failand, to raise vital funds.
City physio Steve Allen has become an ambassador for CHSW, along with goalkeeper Frank Fielding, kitman Scott Murray and football administrator and PA Donna Venables.
To date £20,000 has been raised through a host of auctions, bucket collections and charity events. A Charity Golf Day is due to be held at Henbury Golf Club on Wednesday, March 16th – for information e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
