Sutton United FC is proud to announce its elected charity of season 2012/13 as Sutton MENCAP.
Tracey Hickey, the community and trust fundraiser for Sutton MENCAP, said: ‘"Sutton Mencap are delighted to have been chosen as Sutton United's Charity of the Season. We support children and adults with a learning disability and their carers by providing play, leisure and respite opportunities to over 200 local families. We are really looking forward to working with the club over the course of the season and to supporting the development of their disability football provision." This is what some of the members that use their services say:- “I come because I love it a lot. I see all my friends. We have a good laugh” “My child was safe, happy and excited about going – she was cared for but not just left to get on with it”
Club chairman Bruce Elliott said: ‘’ We are pleased to welcome MENCAP as our charity for this season. We are looking forward to working with them to raise awareness of mental disabilities within the local community as part of our football development plan which aims to provide opportunities and state of the art sports facilities to all ages and abilities.’’
