Each year MK Dons host an Ability Counts day to celebrate the inclusive work being done across the club. This year the club celebrated the event by combining the ability counts day with the Armed Forces parade.
The club, through MK Dons Sport Education Trust launched a new, innovative and unique project with the Armed Forces to promote awareness and to support those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and life changing injury.
Ahead of the game MK Dons hosted a behind the scenes tour for fans to come and see the stadium, this attracted 200 fans.
At half time there was a 500 strong pitch parade marking the day with Level Playing Field flags, scarves and photo boards on show.
Tony Taylor, Chair of Level Playing Field, was at the match and said: “MK Dons and MKDSA continue to show great support not only for our Weeks of Action, but their commitment to good access and inclusion for disabled fans is really impressive. Last year, saw the launch of their brilliant Changing Places facility and this year the club has continued to offer its disabled supporters – both home and away – a warm, welcoming and accessible environment, with innovative activities being launched”
Level Playing Field would like to thank MK Dons and everyone involved in supporting this year’s campaign.
