Saturday 30th September, home to Winchester City was the game for Barnstaple Town to launch their new home kit.
The new kit, supplied by MJM Sports, sees a new name grace the front – Everything Ellie, a fantastic local charity with a very special connection to the club.
The Charity was originally set up in memory of Ellie, who we lost in March 2015 to secondary Leukaemia Relapse aged 16, following a 2 year battle with Teenage Cancer. Facing terminal illness, Ellie remained very graceful & grown-up, her goal was to have a landmark in her name and ‘The Beach Hut’ seemed the obvious choice.
It was Ellie’s wish that this beach hut be enjoyed by people in similar situations, Ellie wanted people to enjoy and create lasting memories that will last a lifetime, bringing a bit of sunshine to an otherwise gloomy time. Their long term aim is to have their very own Woodland holiday lodge in North Devon where families can stay for longer and spend precious quality time together, having use of the beach hut which will always be the very heart of the charity.
