In partnership with the Shots Foundation, Aldershot Town will be offering free female hygiene products in the relevant facilities within the EBB Stadium from this afternoon’s fixture with Torquay United.
The initiative comes after a suggestion from ATFC Community Champion Kay Khan and is hoped to remove any potential barriers preventing women from attending home fixtures.
Sir John Casey, Chair of the Shots Foundation said: “We welcome this suggestion from Kay. Everyone at the Club wants our stadium to be an open and welcoming place for our female fans and our aim is to break down any barriers that may prevent them from attending games at the EEB.”
“As the club’s official charity, we want to create a Club that, by making small changes, can have a big impact on the local community and we feel this is one initiative that can do that. We want to encourage more female fans into the EBB stadium and cheer on the Shots”.
The initiative launches as the Shots Foundation and the Club celebrate the “Her Game Too” campaign, a female fan-led movement that aims to foster an ethos of respect and inclusivity for women across the game.
The Shots Foundation is looking for sponsorship to support the campaign – anyone interested should contact Jack McGee at the Foundation on email@example.com
