Stevenage Football Club is proud to support Level Playing Field for Tuesday's Matchday against Swindon Town…
The LPF Weeks of Action - held between 2nd March to 17th March - aims to celebrate the positive initiatives undertaken by clubs, sporting venues, and their governing bodies in partnership with disabled sports fans and disabled supporters’ associations.
Now in its 15th year, Level Playing Field helps promote a better matchday experience for disabled football supporters while encouraging more disabled people to go and watch matches across all of the EFL. Stevenage Football Club welcomes supporters of all disabilities and is committed to improving it’s own access and facilities, which will be helped by the building of the North Stand and subsequent new Wheelchair disabled section.
To help celebrate the LPF Weeks of Action, 10 students from Lonsdale School will be attending tomorrow’s game as VIP guests of the club. Londsale School in Stevenage is for physically and neurologically impaired young people aged from 3 to 18 years and does incredible work for disabled youngsters in the local area. These special guests are residence students, meaning they live full-time at the school and will be taking part in a special Matchday Package which will see them take to the pitch and form the pre-match Guard of Honour.
We will also be raising money for the Lonsdale Outdoor Inclusive Experience Charity, set-up in order to develop the existing opportunities and provisions for learning outside the classroom.
LOuIE aims to raise money and provide outdoor equipment, resources, provisions and experiences for Lonsdale Students and staff members that are inclusive to all. Please keep an eye out and give generously to the LOuIE Bucket Collectors inside and outside the stadium on Tuesday.
Finally, the Stevenage starting XI will warm-up in Level Playing Field t-shirts and you can get involved in the Weeks of Action campaign by posting your messages of support on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #WeeksOfAction. Find out more by visiting www.levelplayingfield.org.uk
