DONATE FOR LIAM GIBBS' CHARITY CHALLENGE

8 June 2021

"We just want to raise as much money as possible to help as many people as possible who could suffer with this in later life"

Town U18s midfielder Liam Gibbs will be climbing the three peaks with his two brothers inside 24 hours as they look to raise money to support those impacted by brain injuries.

Liam, Ryan and Jordan will be completing the challenge, which takes place on Friday, 18 June, in aid of Head for Change.

Head for Change is a start up charitable foundation, pioneering positive change for brain health in sport and supporting ex-players who are affected by neurodegenerative disease as a result of their professional sporting career in football or rugby.

The three brothers have set an initial target of raising £1,500 to help support those who are impacted with brain injuries and their families.

Liam spoke to the Club website about the idea of the challenge and to thank everyone who has donated and supported them.

"We were looking at different charities who we could raise money for and how they can help people that get brain injuries," the 18-year-old said.

"We’re all athletic and we’re quite into walking so it was a nice way to complete a challenge and raise money for a charity that need it.

"This was a new charity when we were coming up with the challenge and they hadn’t had any fundraising events for them so far. They do great work to help people that are suffering with brain injuries, their families and everyone it affects really.

"A massive thank you to everyone that has donated so far. All donations are hugely appreciated and any more are welcomed. We just want to raise as much money as possible to help as many people as possible who could suffer with this in later life."
