Gillingham FC Community Trust visit Pentagon Centre to offer support to AT SocietyThis week GFC Community Trust coach Jay Scally, accompanied by Tommy T, paid a visit to the Pentagon centre in Chatham where a fund raising event was taking place for the A-T Society.
A-T is a degenerative genetic condition with limited treatment options and no cure. The A-T Society supports children with families and gives them hope. They work to improve the quality of life and medical care for people living with A-T and funds research to help find a cure.
Tommy T, along with ‘Penny the dragon’ and ‘A-T the bear,’ participated in various different sporting activities including an egg and spoon race, penalty shoot-out and lawn darts to help spread the word and raise money for a much needed cause.
A number of shoppers gathered around the Event Space to witness the mascots and other participants battling against one another in an attempt to be crowned A-T fund raiser champion! With Tommy T lacking in the Egg and spoon race and Lawn Darts, he stepped up to the mark to score an impressive 3/3 in the penalty shootout.
Pentagon Marketing manager Jack Brackstone-Brown said: "At the Pentagon Shopping centre we're always looking for new and exciting ways to raise money for our charity, the AT Society.
“Our Mascot mini sports day was a lot of fun and a great way of engaging with the public, helped in no small part by Tommy T and our new friends at Gillingham Football Club".
Gillingham Football Club would like to congratulate the A-T society for the success from the day and wish them all the best for the future.
