Parky Says Thanks For £10k Pool
Gary would like to thank Blackpool supporters and former Blackpool players for their wonderful gesture after he personally collected a cheque for £10,000.
Gary met with members of the Blackpool Supporters Trust and his former coaching colleague Steve Thompson at Blackpool’s Hilton Hotel yesterday to thank them for raising money to fund a new chair to enhance his independence.
The money was raised at a dinner staged by BST to commemorate Pool’s promotion to the Premier League five years ago. Members of that promotion-winning squad, including Charlie Adam, Ian Evatt, Brett Ormerod, Keith Southern, Gary Taylor-Fletcher and David Vaughan joined more than 400 supporters on a memorable night.
Around £4,500 had been raised on the evening before former Pool skipper Adam took to the stage to announce that the assembled players would between them donate £5,500 to make up the £10,000 target.
