There will be a pre match collection before tomorrow’s game in support of Ballymena United Sales and Marketing executive, Brian Thompson’s charity walk to Windsor Park.
Brian has in recent seasons been walking from the Showgrounds to other Irish Premier league Grounds in support of the charity, Bravehearts NI. The charity works for children with congenital heart disease. They hope to have a dedicated ward soon at the Royal Victoria Hospital. The Charity also help sports clubs avail of defibrillators. He calls this challenge his ‘Walk of Hope’.
Tomorrow he will complete his 17th in Total (13 Irish league fixtures and 3 League cup finals) and he believes it is somewhat fitting his last is to Windsor Park, having worked for Linfield between 1995 and 2001.
Brian expressed his appreciation “I had several great years at Windsor Park with Linfield and it is always great to see old friends again. Many thanks to the Linfield board of directors for allowing Bravehearts a collection at this game.”
