The Gully’s Big Days Out JOLF event is backed by American Express and delivered by Albion in the Community (AITC), the official charity of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club. JOLF coaches provided an introduction to golf and the opportunity to play a round on a specially designed six-hole course.

American Express colleagues provided support and encouragement during the activities. The club’s official mascot Gully made a surprise appearance to ensure the youngsters had a memorable day. This is the third Gully’s Big Days Out event this year. Previous days have included a once in a lifetime opportunity to play on the pitch at the Amex Stadium and a fun day of football drills and activities to develop passing, shooting and dribbling skills at the Amex Training Ground.Participants were all members of AITC’s disability programmes.
