11 August 2021

"We know about the importance of this club embedding itself in the community"

Town centre-back George Edmundson visited local disability group, Avenues East, this afternoon at Portman Road.

Avenues East are based in Ipswich and work with people who are disabled, autistic or have complex support needs, helping them to enjoy fulfilling lives in the community.

Blues' Community Trust have recently partned with Avenues East, and today was the first day for the Club hosting children aged 10-18 years with disabilities. 

Participants enjoyed a fun-filled day which involved a tour of the stadium, with lunch included, before undertaking some drills and skills put on by one of the Community Trust's coaches. 

Club mascot Bluey also dropped by to say hello to the participants, before George surprised the children towards the end of their day.

The 23-year-old told the Club website: "It was great to get out in the community and see so many faces.

"It's a really good scheme that they've got here with the group, and they looked like they all had a really good day.

"We know about the importance of this club embedding itself in the community, and as players, we're really happy to get out and about."
