Lifelong Millwall Fan at Sunrise of Frognal House Surprised With Exclusive Stadium Tour

A resident at Sunrise of Frognal House, on Frognal Avenue, was treated to a one-on-one tour round the stadium of his beloved Millwall Football Club. 

As part of the community’s ‘Making Memories’ initiative, lifelong fan John was taken on an exclusive tour of The Den by the club’s director, Peter Garston, who is the father of Sunrise of Frognal’s Director of Community Relations, Harry Garston.

Harry organised the trip having spoken to John about his passion for Millwall Football Club, and his desire to go back to the stadium at least one more time.

The tour included visits to the stadium’s press lounge, the Chairman’s office, and the trophy cabinet, and drew on the expertise that both Peter and Harry have about the club and its grounds.

As well as visiting the stadium, John was recently presented with a scrapbook of photographs documenting the history of Millwall Football Club, given by the Community Relations Associate at Sunrise of Frognal House, Anne Clark.

The visit organised for John is emblematic of the dedication and support of team members at Sunrise of Frognal House, and their continual efforts to ensure residents are able to lead happy, fulfilled lives, and express their interests and passions.

Harry Garston, Director of Community Relations at Sunrise of Frognal House, said:

“John really enjoyed his visit to Millwall Football Club’s stadium, which allowed him to delve into the club’s history and explore every inch of the grounds, from the changing rooms to the trophy cabinet.

“It was a special occasion for three hugely passionate Millwall fans to be able go around the stadium together, sharing stories about the club’s past, and our experiences watching the team.

“Organising outdoor trips for residents is a vital part of what we do at Sunrise of Frognal, as it allows them to ‘make memories’ and develop their many interests”.
