Litter Kickers recognised by Angels

Little Kickers presentation 04.09.21.

Danny and JoJo guests of honour at The Halcyon Wealth Longmead Stadium

Two football loving boys known as “Litter Kickers” from Tonbridge have been rewarded as guests of honour at the Angels National South fixture against Hampton & Richmond.  

Danny and JoJo,12 and 10 respectively, reached out to their community during the Coronavirus lockdowns last year by helping to keep the town clean with some extensive litter picking over many streets.

The efforts formed part of their charity work that Muslims perform during Ramadan which last year coincided with part of the lockdown.

The boys were presented at half time by the club’s Chairman Dave Netherstreet with Angels football shirts and footballs signed by the 1st team.

Danny aged 12 goes to St Gregory’s School and plays for Tonbridge Invicta Youth with his favourite team Liverpool and favourite player Mo Salah, while JoJo (10) attends Sussex Road School with Spurs his favourite club and Lionel Messi his top player. 

The boys efforts came to the attention of Angels long time supporter and match day volunteer Colin Hill who decided that their work should be recognised by the town’s senior football club.  

Dave Netherstreet said: “These boys went the extra mile in helping the community during what was a difficult time for the town and its residents. We are delighted at Tonbridge Angels to recognise their fine work and we hope they enjoyed their day with us.

Colin Hill is keen to hear from anyone who would like to put forward the names of young people whose efforts helped the Tonbridge community so that their work can be recognised. If you know anyone who might fall into this category then please email Colin at Colinhill83@yahoo.com
