Fans crowdfund £7000 to help Joe aged 6 and a half afford to watch his team after heartfelt letter

The devoted supporter, known only as ‘Joe’, came to public attention when the club shared the letter on Tuesday evening with the hope of finding him.

The Petition you can view here has reached over £7200

Joe, aged six and a half, sent the club 26 pence to give to his favourite player, forward Harry McKirdy.

But he added he cannot go to see games because his mum ‘has no money for food and has to pay for my dinner at school’.

The petition set up has now raised over £7000 which will surely go a long way in enabling the young boy to watch his team Swindon Town and perhaps help to ease any burden from the cost of living for his mum.
