We are delighted to announced that we have sponsored two privileged accessible seats at Plymouth Argyle‘s Home Park Stadium. This new initiative has been set up in memory of club ambassador and commentator, Gordon Sparks.
The initiative aims to provide fans with the opportunity to witness their team in action during the 2023-24 Sky Bet Championship season. Two privileged accessible seats have been set aside for a St Luke’s patient or family member and their guest for every Plymouth Argyle home game.
These specially reserved seats offer a fantastic view from PLG’s wheelchair-accessible branded viewing platform in the Beacon Electrical Lower Mayflower stand. To ensure a seamless experience, a dedicated volunteer named Elliott Darcy will be on hand to assist, along with vouchers for refreshments and regular check-ins from St Luke’s nurse specialist and avid Pilgrims’ fan, Debbie Hutchinson.
One of the first beneficiaries of this initiative, Ray, was a VIP for the day this last weekend for the match against Blackburn Rovers. Ray a 77 year old grandfather is currently receiving care at home from St Luke’s specialist nursing team.
Phill Gill, PLG Consultants Managing Director, added: “We have been looking at ways of supporting the club in a way that fits the work we do. Having listened to and been friends with Sparksy for many years and seen the tremendous help St Luke’s gave to my best friend’s sister earlier this year it felt like a great initiative to be a part of.”
