Childrens Charity Match Day organised by Mackoy Ltd, BDW and KidsOut in conjunction with Eastleigh FC
On the 23rd of April, 27 children and their mums attended an Eastleigh football match versus the Tranmere Rovers as VIP guests. Treated to lunch at the club house, face painting, their own football kit and special meet sessions with the Eastleigh players, the children came primarily from refuges in the Southampton and Hampshire area. Each was tasked with escorting a player onto the pitch, and then returned to special seats to watch the game.
The match was attended by some 3,000 fans, with radio presenter and KidsOut supporter Mike Osman acting as compère at half-time.
The children’s VIP experience was made possible by KidsOut ambassador Glen O’Nion of Barratt & David Wilson Homes and Mike Mayock of Mackoy Ltd. The day was part of KidsOut’s Fun Days service, which works to give children living in refuge or with other disadvantages the opportunity to have fun and remember what it’s like to be children.
