OVER 80 members of the Green Army have graciously stepped forward to volunteer for our Day of Action on Sunday, July 7.
The club is overwhelmed by the generosity of spirit evidenced by the supporters, which includes contributions from qualified tradespeople, as well as event sponsors PASOTI (Plymouth Argyle Supporters on the Internet), the Green Taverners and Need-a-Cab 247.
Event lead Christian Kent, the club’s Head of Corporate Hospitality and Events, said: “We are extremely thankful for the support provided by local businesses and members of the Green Army.
“What began as a plea to help us tidy up our magnificent stadium has now evolved into quite a huge undertaking. We are excited about the groundswell of support and hope to make a real lasting impact on Home Park with our community effort.”
As a token of our gratitude for volunteering efforts, the club has organised a number of initiatives to take place on the day, with the intention of combining the Day of Action with a family day out. The Green Taverners are laying on breakfast and lunch for volunteers, while Argyle Community Trust have organised a range of activities for children. including table-tennis, 8-ball pool and video games. In addition, all participants will be given a complimentary ticket to a future first-team friendly.
It will not only be supporters putting in the toil, though, as club personnel, from academy players through to representatives from the Board of Directors, will also be attending on the day.
Some of the areas to be tackled during the Day of Action include landscaping, both inside and outside of the ground, painting, power-washing and tidying up ground-boards and advertising hoardings. The corner area located between the Devonport End and the new Mayflower Grandstand, known to some as Bobby’s Garden, will also be tidied up.
What has become clear, through this project, is that all involved with Argyle, from stakeholders to staff members, have embraced the ‘one Argyle’ ethos. The outpouring of support means that the Day of Action is likely to be able to tackle more tasks than initially expected. If you have any suggestions for projects to be undertaken by our hundred-strong community contingent, please do get in touch – we would welcome ideas on how to improve the look and feel of the Theatre of Greens.
