Millwall Community Trust celebrates landmark anniversary

25 May 2016

When Harvey met Herman at the House of Lords!

Harvey Brown's dad Dean stole the show on Tuesday night as Millwall Community Trust celebrated 30 years of operations with a special celebration at the House of Lords.
 
Hosted by Lord Herman Ouseley, the exclusive event saw Community Trust staff, club officials, local politicians and many more - including Lions boss Neil Harris and playing trio Tony Craig, Steve Morison and Jimmy Abdou - all come together to mark more than three decades of Millwall's unique work within its local boroughs.
 
Guests in attendance were treated to speeches from Steve Bradshaw, CEO at Millwall Community Trust, and Andy Ambler, the club's chief executive, amongst others, before they heard the unique story of Gary Otim, whose personal journey began as a Kicks participant right the way through to becoming a programme manager in the Lions Centre.
 
Following that was the equally intriguing tale of Leanne Cowan who, like Otim, began as a participant, but is now a Community Trust coach and also plays for Millwall Lionesses.
 
But the very best was left until last as Harvey and his dad took to the microphone. Dean gave an incredibly emotional speech expressing he and his family's gratitude towards Millwall for their support of his son, moving many in the room to tears as he explained just how much it will mean to Harvey to lead The Lions out at Wembley on Sunday.
