VISIT TO PLAYERS' CHARITY OF THE YEAR - KIDS IN ACTION!

The Hatters media team went with the players to their charity of the season yesterday

26 October 2018

Hatters stars Harry Cornick, Harry Isted, James Shea and Jack Stacey spent time yesterday afternoon visiting their chosen players' charity of the season, Kids In Action, in Dunstable.

The lads spent an hour and a half being given a tour of the charity's HQ by founder Paul Bowen-James and manager Tracy Hammond, before playing air hockey, pool and video games with several of the children and young adults with learning difficulties and disabilities who attend the centre.

While there, the boys met wheelchair-bound William, 31-year-old Alfie - who has been going to Kids In Action for 23 years - and Curtis, who lives with cerebral palsy. The 13-year-old came to the Hatters' win over Southend earlier this season, and predictably fell in love that night with a certain Town striker - 'Super' Danny Hylton - who wasn't on the visit yesterday, but gave the young fan a lovely surprise by interrupting his shopping trip with his wife and children to FaceTime him in the centre's coffee shop! 

Another Alfie, who lives with autism, even persuaded Harry Cornick to lend him his trainers for the afternoon.
