Aerial Direct Community Day 2016
For the past few weeks we’ve given away hundreds of free tickets for our community day which took place on Saturday 19th November. The event was held at the Aerial Direct stadium where supporters joined us to watch Gosport FC play Concord Rangers.
Despite a very wet day and a 3-5 loss to Concord Rangers, spirits were high as the pitch was surrounded by more than double the usual number of supporters.
Aerial Direct is a regular supporter of Rays of Sunshine, a charity that brightens the lives of children who are living with serious or life-threatening illnesses across the UK. We were joined by the Astley family who recently visited Orlando Florida after their daughter, Lily, had her wish granted by the charity. At half time, the family, on behalf of Rays of Sunshine, accepted a cheque for £5,300. This was money raised by Aerial Direct staff who completed the 3 peaks challenge in September this year.
We collected an additional £471.34 for the charity throughout the day from generous donations made by those who attended the event. We’d like to thank everyone for their contributions and to all those who joined us.
