TEAM SPIRIT WHICH CROSSES
Leamington Hibernian are committed to enabling all young people, regardless of sex, race, religion or disability to have the opportunity to enhance their lives through football, and to use the popularity of football to improve educational and training standards for young people. We aim to work closely with local businesses, charities and educational establishments so that we can play a role toward social inclusion and raising educational standards.
Whilst our community development programme is in its infancy, we welcome any ideas, projects or fundraising events in support of the local community and have plenty of enthusiastic young volunteers ready and available for worthy causes.
Contact Stuart on 07739575868 with any ideas as to how we can enrich the lives of our players and invigorate the local community with our very own Hibs brand of team spirit.
RUBY JOHNSON APPEAL
WOW - Its amazing what can be achieved when needed. This week Ruby and her family jetted off to the US safe in the knowledge that her insurance fees were now more than covered by funds raised in the six weeks leading up to her departure. The current total stands at over £22,000 which will go a long way in providing her and her family with the holiday of a lifetime in addition to supporting the specialist care she will need on her return. Special thanks in these hard times to all the Hibs community who donated money, purchased wristbands or turned up at any of the fund raising events organised by the local press and the Newbold Comyn Arms.
"Thirteen-year-old Ruby Johnson, only child of Richard and Sarah, enjoyed a
healthy childhood until she woke up one morning with a pain in her back.
For the past three years, Leamington
teenager Ruby has been battling with a rare form of childhood cancer.
Ruby's life has been turned upside down, as she has coped with long spells in hospital and the side effects of chemotherapy, surgery, stem cell transplant and radiotherapy. Her illness has robbed her of a normal life such as school, fun and friends. But now, the Swansea-based charity, The Christian Lewis Trust, has offered Ruby a fantastic holiday at "Give Kids The World".
"Give Kids The World" is a non-profit resort in Florida designed specifically to create magical memories for children with life-limiting illnesses and their families. Ruby travels to Florida on 14 November 2008.
Ruby's plight has been made harder in recent weeks as the family have struggled to find insurance cover for the holiday and £3000 is needed to provide the family with peace of mind during their stay.
Hibs will be pledging their support by selling wristbands at matches and events in the coming weeks, in these tough times, any donations will be gratefully received."
