Peoples Millions grant goes to Community department's Caper project
WE DID IT!
The club's Community Department are celebrating after they won a £50,000 grant from the Peoples Millions lottery fund so they can continue their great work with autistic children at the Caper sessions which they set up earlier this year.
The club's Caper project won the telephone vote staged on Wednesday and based around the Vote4Capers campaign.
Community Manager Birtug Kazim said: "It's fantastic news and all thanks to the hard work of a lot of people in the club and, of course, everyone who voted for us.
"Winning the award means we can expand the scheme so we can help more autistic kids in Sussex through football."
The £50,000 cheque will be presented pitch-side before Saturday's home game against Chesterfield.
