Over 80 children with disabilities and their families from across Sussex enjoyed a festive celebration at the American Express Community Stadium on Monday 22nd December.
The Gully’s Community Christmas Party was organised by Albion in the Community, the charitable arm of Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club. It was made possible thanks to support from the charity’s corporate partner, American Express, whose employees also showed their support by volunteering on the day.
Children were welcomed by the club’s mascot, Gully and had the opportunity to meet Santa, have their faces painted, try out circus skills and don fancy dress for a souvenir photo at the selfie station.
