Posh Foundation

Andy Palmer was on hand to receive a cheque for over £850 ahead of the Championship fixture with Nottingham Forest.

Ahead of the Sky Bet Championship fixture with Nottingham Forest, Andy Palmer, chair of trustees of the Posh Foundation, received a cheque for £870.16, which will go towards paying for coaching and facilities within the Posh deaf football project.

Norma Lawrence and son Alan from Oxford, alongside family and friends raised the money to try and encourage more deaf children to take part in football. Norma is deaf and her husband Trevor, who was also deaf, passed away in November last year.

Trevor was a keen football fan and was hugely proud of his great-nephew Will Palmer who played for Peterborough United’s deaf football team. Norma was joined by her son Alan and brother Godfrey to make the presentation.
