An anonymous Mansfield Town fan has donated two season tickets to a supporter who recently had his mobility scooter stolen.
The unidentified supporter, wishing only to be known as ‘Wilfred’ from the online forum Stags Net, contacted the club after recently viewing the news online.
Michael Plant had his mobility scooter - crucial for his schooling and independence - taken in Ladybrook earlier this month.
Learning of this, another Mansfield Town fan, Gary Hagan of Mansfield Mobility Centre in Forest Town, donated a replica of the scooter to Michael.
This act of generosity was followed by Wilfred’s offer of two season tickets to Michael and his carer, who gratefully accepted them last night at ‘An Evening with John & Carolyn Radford’, held at the club.
It is the second time in as many seasons that Stags’ supporter ‘Wilfred’ has bought season tickets for fellow fans.
Earlier last year, he donated two season tickets to Paul and Brendan Whitehead, whose wife/mother had been suffering with cancer.
Chairman John Radford said: “It’s a heart warming gesture from ‘Wilfred’ and Gary Hagan.
“It’s heartening to see that good will and kindness are alive in our community and Town.
“It makes me proud to be chairman of our club to see fellow supporters make acts like these for others.”
