WORLD GAME CHANGERS STEP UP TO THE PLATE FOR MILLERS AND JEMMA!
Carlton are only hours away from their final league fixture of the season away at Stamford in a game that could have positive consequences for both teams depending on how the final day also pans out elsewhere.
Positives fallouts from Carlton’s 4-0 win over Spalding on Easter Monday are coming thick and fast.
Firstly , Carlton’s Charity partners World Game Changers agreed to cover the cost of up to 175 Junoirs from the club attending the Millers Senior Cup Final at Basford United and the club are now working on that proposal with the Junior set up.
“The charity are aware of the cost of living crisis upon us and they are geared up to helping young people” Chairman Mick Garton told us.
” They also met our very special guest last Monday Jemma Connor-Iommi and Paul and Jemma are pictured with the mascots from Mondays game and World Game Changers are going to donate the medals for a brilliant Community event Jemma is heavily involved with on Saturday 21st May”
“Their big Charity event follows at Stoke Lane on Sunday 22nd May at Stoke Lane when a World Game Changers Celebrity X1 will take on a Carlton Town team 2pm”
“More details regarding whose playing etc will be revealed in the coming days, but for now the club would like to thank Paul Lowe and his team for their support ”
World Game Changers have issued the following press release.
Carlton Town chairman Mick Garton, and founder of the World Game-Changers (WGC) charitable organisation Paul Lowe, have developed a mutually-beneficial long-standing relationship, spanning almost 20 years.
In December 2019, Paul was part of Carlton’s Christmas Lunch – interviewing one of his past mentors, former Nottingham Forest boss Paul Hart. It was at this function that Paul Lowe and Gary ‘Boatsy’ Clarke first met.
Since then, Paul and Gary have struck-up an equally mutually-beneficial friendship and partnership, not least with their respective passions for serving communities, and particularly the Carlton Town Football Club community.
Two very recent examples of this have emerged from Carlton’s Easter Monday game with Spalding. During one of many conversations here, the topic of Carlton’s imminent Cup Final appearance was mentioned.
More specifically though, the possibility of raising money to cover the costs of providing transport for 175 young people from Carlton’s junior teams, to be able to travel to watch the final on May 4th.
Within a few minutes, Paul and Gary (a highly-valued Patron of WGC), agreed that World Game-Changers would sponsor the full cost of the transport for Carlton Town’s youngsters – the first of a beautiful brace!
On the back of this donation, Carlton’s guest speaker at the Spalding game – Jemma Connor-Iommi – mentioned to Paul, another truly outstanding community initiative she was organising; a football tournament on 21st May, at the Forest Recreation Ground.
It soon become apparent that was also a marvellous opportunity for WGC to support a local, youth-focused partnership opportunity. As a result, Gary and Paul – on behalf of WGC – agreed to sponsor the trophies for the terrific tournament.
