“Oh Forest We Love You!”
Whilst four of the co-authors from this book – Gary Clarke, Paul Kelly, Steve Corry, and Paul Lowe – will be very familiar with these five words that are passionately chanted from the terraces of the world-famous City Ground (home to Nottingham Forest Football Club, based in Nottingham, England), there is a far more collective consideration that brings ALL our co-authors together.
Due to Nottingham Forest’s heartfelt generosity, many young children from the village of Jilo in Ghana will benefit from wearing Forest kits, donated by the twice former European Cup Winners – contributing even further to the uplifting and well-being of the local community.
Paul Lowe offers some insight into the significance of this magnanimous donation from his beloved Nottingham Forest:
“I know first-hand the immense positive knock-on effect this will have to these young people in Ghana, when they wear the famous Garibaldi Red of Forest; it becomes so much more than just a football kit. For the youngsters, it emerges as a symbol of love and hope – knowing that ‘strangers’ from thousands of miles away, have compassionately taken them into their hearts.”
