Dulwich Hamlet FC – March news!

  For the third year running Dulwich Hamlet Supporters’ Trust produced a limited edition Dulwich Hamlet Rainbow scarf to celebrate LGBT+ History Month.  Alongside the scarves, we had on sale beanies and trucker caps that feature the club crest in the colours of the LGBT+ Rainbow Flag.  A limited number of these rainbow scarves and headwear can now be purchased on the Trust run club shop wwwdhfcshop.co.uk. A percentage of the profits, from the sale of the scarves, has been donated to two LGBT+ charity organisations Football v Homophobia and AKT (Albert Kennedy Trust). All these items went on sale when Chelmsford City visited Champion Hill at the beginning of February.  As a guest of the Trust, the game was attended by Brian Stokes from Football V Homophobia and at HT he accepted a “giant” cheque for £600 for this organisation, which was the Trust’s donation from the sale of the rainbow scarves. Football V Homophobia was originally conceived and launched by the Justin Campaign in 2010 to raise awareness of homophobia that was still prevalent in both grassroots and professional football.  The Justin …
