A message from the Football Club…
Milton Keynes Dons were devastated to learn last week of the tragic passing of our dear friend and colleague Lucy Dawson following her fight against a very short and unexpected illness.
There are really no words to express the shock and extreme sadness we all feel by the loss of such a vibrant and spirited young person.
We will always remember just how much Lucy was committed to our Football Club. Lucy was a season ticket holder from an early age, attending games with her family before joining us on work experience with the media team whilst still at school.
Her enthusiasm and dedication always shone through and led to her recently being promoted to work alongside Andy Wooldridge as Hospitality & Events Coordinator - in her words, her dream job!
Again, she excelled in her role and only a month ago delivered the most magnificent Player of the Year Awards, described by attendees as the ‘best evening ever’.
The Club have opened a book of condolence in the Box Office for supporters who wish to pay tribute to Lucy. The Box Office is open 10am to 4pm, Monday through Friday.
Our thoughts and support remain with Lucy’s family and friends through this enormously difficult time. While we ask that their privacy continues to be respected, we know that the MK Dons family will come together to support all those affected.
Rest in peace, Lucy. You will be forever missed and forever loved by us all.
