Recognising a Family of Fundraisers
Three generations of Blues fans are looking forward to a fabulous day out at St. Andrew’s after being nominated for their fantastic support for the charity, Help Harry Help Others.
Adam Rickitt, CEO of the charity, nominated Kate Smith, along with her father Bob and sons Ryan, Ben and Harry who will be given the VIP treatment in the EZE Group box at a future game. Kate has been incredibly supportive of HHHO, organising a range of fundraising activities, from fun runs to bracelet making. Inspired by her efforts the other family members are now getting behind the charity with as much enthusiasm as their support for the Blues.
Lifelong Fan to enjoy VIP Experience
Fred Greaves has been supporting Blues for 66 years and never misses a game at St Andrew’s. His friend Mrs L Wilson wrote in with an EZE Wish for Fred to be treated to some VIP hospitality in recognition of his outstanding support. As well as watching the boys in blue, 78-year-old Fred is a regular spectator at the Wast Hills training ground. “There’s no truer Bluenose anywhere,” says Mrs Wilson, which is why EZE Group is more than happy to make this particular wish come true.
'Amazing' Dad to meet the players
Ten-year-old Charlotte Williams nominated her daddy Gary to meet the players and receive a signed Blues shirt. Gary, aged 53, – otherwise known as Blue Nose Gaz – has been fighting cancer for two years, and despite having to give up work because of the illness rarely misses a game. In her wish nomination Charlotte wrote “I hope you pick my amazing daddy as he deserves it for being the best supporter ever.” EZE Group is delighted to fulfil this special wish.
New Year’s Day EZE Wish for New York sisters
Sisters Jessica and Rebecca Ford are described as crazy, fanatical Blues supporters despite having to follow the team from the other side of the pond – in Long Island, New York. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the two girls have shown their true community spirit by raising funds and helping co-ordinate support for needy kids and local families still living in temporary accommodation after the devastation of the storm. Nine years-old Jessica is a big fan of Nikola Zigic and when the family visit St. Andrew’s for the New Year’s Day fixture against Cardiff she and her sister will have an EZE Wish come true - walking out with the team as mascots for the day. Dad Andrew nominated the girls for the huge difference they have made in their local community in New York.
Father and Son to Enjoy VIP EZE wish
David Lloyd and his son Chris are both looking forward to a VIP day out at St. Andrew's thanks to our EZE Wish campaign. David has been fighting cancer for the last three years which has impacted on the number of games he can attend, whilst Chris, was nominated separately by friend Karen Bailey, for the devotion he has shown to caring for his dad. We’re looking forward to treating them both to a special day out.
An EZE Wish for brave Callan
When Callan Brady lost his dad to pancreatic cancer in May this year he decided to raise funds to help fight the disease. In a traumatic year which also saw Callan help care for his dad along with his mother and sister, the 13-years-old's support for the Blues has been a welcome pre-occupation. Callan’s sister Chalsey nominated him for a special EZE Wish to meet the players at Blues Wast Hills training ground. It’s one we are delighted to fulfil.
Granting an EZE Wish for Trevor this Christmas
Eighty-year-old season ticket holder Trevor Deeley first watched Blues play in 1935, when he was just three. In recognition of this outstanding loyal support and for his involvement in the local community, Adrian Howell nominated Trevor for an EZE Wish - a VIP day out with his grandson courtesy of EZE Group.
Granting an EZE Wish for Kieran this Christmas
Fifteen-year-old Blues fan Kieran Stanley lives life to the full and never complains despite having to cope with Cystic Fibrosis. His dad John nominated Kieran for a very special wish – to lay the team’s kit out in the dressing room. Kieran lives and breathes Blues, so we will be delighted to grant this amazing Eze Wish – watch this space for news of Kieran’s matchday experience behind-the-scenes at St Andrews.
