Brave Oliver will carry out matchball for Boxing Day clash with Fulham
Five-year-old Oliver Roy Turner was diagnosed with a Wilms tumour back in March 2016. Following major surgery to take away his kidney so that the tumour was removed, Oliver has had to undergo intensive sessions of chemotherapy and radiotherapy and will continue to do so until February 2017.
Oliver and his family have the full force of Ipswich Town support behind them and on Boxing Day for the game against Fulham we will show Oliver just what that means.
We are very proud of this special little boy and will be delighted to have him at Portman Road on Monday, along with dad Russell, who has supported Town since he was Oliver’s age. It’s our honour to have Oliver as our Community Champion.
If you know someone who deserves some recognition for doing something special, going above and beyond, shown a huge amount of bravery or given up their time for a local charity, or maybe they’ve shown kindness towards others or deserve a bit of recognition for overcoming adversity, then email your nomination as Community Champion to firstname.lastname@example.org.
