As regular readers of my articles will know, I’m a massive fan of the Aston Villa Foundation and was very proud to be their first champion, crawling a marathon to raise funds for them.

We have a thread in the forum dedicated to the set up, and I often share their posts on tweeter and facebook to get the message out, about the very human, kind, and necessary side of our fantastic club. See: The AVFC Foundation & Charity Thread

This one struck home just before Christmas when Dean Smith surprises some of the members of the Dementia Cafe with a zoom call.

Dean knows what he is talking about this because his dad suffered from dementia. The hardest thing to hear when our manager talks about all this is the fact he wasn’t able to explain to his dad that he was manager of the club that he was brought up supporting.

Lovely though, Dean talks about a book that has been released on the formative years of Aston Villa and he promises to send them a copy.

Today there has been a tweet showing he has now sent them a copy.

Lovely gesture.
