Notts County Foundation Honours Oscar and Kayleigh with Captain’s Corner Award for February

In a heart warming gesture of support and recognition, Notts County Foundation has named Oscar and his mother Kayleigh as the recipients of the Captain’s Corner Award for February 2024. This commendation comes at a pivotal moment for the family, who have been grappling with significant challenges, including Oscar’s experience with bullying at school and Kayleigh’s recent diagnosis of Leukaemia. Despite facing adversity, their resilience and strength have not gone unnoticed, prompting the Foundation to extend a gesture of solidarity and appreciation.

Oscar and Kayleigh’s journey has been marked by trials and tribulations, yet they have remained steadfast in their determination to overcome obstacles together and support their favourite team.

Despite the weight of their circumstances, their bond as a family has remained unbreakable, serving as an inspiration to all who know their story.

This recognition not only celebrates their resilience in the face of adversity but also serves as a beacon of hope for others who may be navigating similar challenges. Through this award, the Foundation seeks to uplift and empower individuals and families within the community, fostering a sense of belonging and support during times of hardship.
