Our year with AFCB
The partnership between AFC Bournemouth and The Dorset Children’s Foundation has been a delight and has really helped to raise The Dorset Children’s Foundation’s profile within the local community.
The highlight was when our children were selected to be flag bearers at the Everton match. Our parents never thought that their children would ever have the opportunity to be on pitch with a Premier League club. This was where dreams were fulfilled and memories made.
Our signed AFC Bournemouth shirt was stolen from our charity shop so we were astonished and delighted when a replacement was brought in to our Boscombe shop by Steve Cook and Steve Fletcher.
We were given the opportunity to have our mascot Dorsey Bear at all the home games which allowed us to not only bond with fans but to generate awareness about our charity.
We would like to thank all at AFC Bournemouth who supported us this year and wish the future charity partners the best of luck’.
