Alzheimer's Football Memory Campaign
We take great pleasure in supporting the Alzheimers Society football memories campaign.
A group of 7 friends from Kent have joined forces to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s/Dementia. This disease is now the biggest killer in the UK and it's one which a cure is currently not available for.
The friends, led by Terry Marsh, are in the process of putting together a collection of memories from football clubs all over the UK. With the Alzheimer's Society's symbol being a forget me not, they are keen to produce a collection which includes the stand out memories from as many clubs as possible.
The collection will be dedicated to people affected with Alzheimer's, their families and carers. The items donated will not be for sale and would be based in the UK for view as a museum piece.The GISC are delighted to be supporting Terry and his friends with the campaign.
We have donated a limited edition 125th Anniversary Badge and a print of the famous Andy Thomson Wembley goal against Wigan signed by Andy Thomson, Andy Hessenthaler and Vince Bartram. We are also in the process of donating some old programmes to add to the collection.
We are sure every Gillingham supporter has your own favourite moment. From the trips to Wembley to our FA Cup giant killings. If you have any items you would like to donate to the campaign the GISC are happy to pass them on. Please email info@GillsISC.co.uk and we will arrange to collect the item(s) from you.
We will keep you up to date every step of the way. Just receiving one old programme would make a massive difference. Even a simple message of support would be tremendous. The campaign would also welcome photos of fans from across the ages to put on display.
