We are delighted to have supported Crystal Palace who applied for the sensory room grant through our partnership with The Premier League, BT and Lords Taverners!
The Eagles have provided two rooms; a room on ground level and a viewing room which is also used as a TV broadcasting suit.
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Guy Wickett, Sandra Clarke and Pam Groves to help develop this wonderful provision. Well done Crystal Palace!
Guy Wickett, Consulting Development Manager at Crystal Palace Football Club, said:
“We are committed to improving the facilities for all our supporters, and we recognise there is always work to be done in improving the experience for all fans including those with accessible needs. Making adjustments to an old stadium always presents a challenge, so when approaching facility requirements for fans with sensory impairments, receiving the support and guidance from Kate and Peter at The Shippey Foundation was of critical importance and warmly welcomed by everyone at CPFC. We are delighted with our new sensory room facilities, and sincerely hope that it improves the matchday experience for fans that wish to use them.”
