Dons to recognise disability teams and Armed Forces on Saturday

Stadium MK to show support for Ability Counts work and Armed Forces members...

1 April 2019

MK Dons will take the opportunity to recognise their Ability Counts work and the work of the Armed Forces at this Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two clash with Lincoln City.

Prior to this weekend, the Club will host Ability Counts tours of Stadium MK, providing supporters with a disability with an opportunity to see behind-the-scenes at the home of MK Dons. What’s more, the evening will include a Q&A session with manager Paul Tisdale and midfielder Alex Gilbey.

The tour, which is FREE to attend, is being held between 5.30pm and 8.30pm on Thursday 4 April. The tour includes FREE food and drink as well as entry to the Q&A.

For more information or to book your stadium tour call Dean Dixon on 07595 409957 or email dean.dixon@mkdonsset.com.

MK Dons SET will also be running a series of demonstration games with the disability teams at the Club’s training facility at Woughton on the Green. These will take place on Saturday morning and spectators and new players are welcome to attend.

Back at Stadium MK, a band and cadet drill team will be performing prior outside Gate 7 ahead of the game. There will also be collection buckets available for supporters to donate to Armed Forces charities.

Prior to kick-off, the Club will be signing the Armed Forces Covenant. The Armed Forces Covenant represents a promise to support the employment of veterans and service leavers, and offer flexibility in leave for service spouses and partner before, during and after deployment.

What’s more, the two teams will walk out to a Guard of Honour from members of the Armed Forces and the SET’s disability teams while, at half-time, both groups will be on full display during a half-time parade around Stadium MK.

For more information on either of the above activities, contact Dean Dixon on 07595 409957 or email dean.dixon@mkdonsset.com.
