Margate Football Club kick-started the festive season for us by surprising our tenants with free tickets to a home game. On Saturday 24th November, football fans; Daniel, Louis, Stephen and Nick were supported by Senior Support Worker, Tamara Boarer to attend the Bostik League match against Bishops Stortford. Despite suffering a loss of 4-1, the group thoroughly enjoyed the day cheering on the team. They were given the opportunity to try out the 3G pitch themselves and even got to meet Margate FC Striker, Joe Taylor!
