JDRF South would like to say a huge thank you to the football-mad Green family. Gavin, Charlene and son Ajay are members of Real 60 FC, one of the longest running football clubs in Medway.
Ajay, nine, plays for the under 10s team which his dad Gavin has managed for just under four years. Ajay was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes just over a month ago, on 19 July 2012.
Last weekend was the Real 60 FC tournament, which Ajay and two of his friends took part in (pictured). The family managed to raise a fantastic £102 for JDRF, and Ajay got to meet other football fans with type 1 who were competing in the tournament.
Gavin and his team are looking to organise some more fundraisers through the football club in the future, such as a penalty shoot out with a Gillingham FC player coming down to support.
Thank you to Gavin, Charlene and Ajay Green, and we look forward to seeing more of your fantastic fundraising in the future!
