Seb Lewis memorial
A year ago Charlton super fan Seb Lewis lost his young life to Covid-19. He was just 38.
Up until the suspension of games Seb had seen 1,076 Charlton games in a row, not missing a game for over 22 years. True Legend and truly missed from The Valley and every away end in the country.
To remember Seb, fan Brogue Stevens set up a fundraising initiative to raise enough money for a memorial at The Valley to remember Seb and to make sure he will always be there looking over us.
To mark the anniversary of Seb’s passing Brogue with the support of CAST set up a fundraising page to reach the money target needed to pay for the memorial. That target was met today in just 12 hours, over £5,000.
CAST, Brogue, club staff, chaplain Matt Baker and Seb’s family have decided on a large mosaic which will be situated on the blank exit gate wall opposite Don Welsh holding the FA Cup at the north-west corner of the stadium.
What a wonderful sight it will be to see Seb’s beaming smile when it is completed and hopefully to coincide with the return of supporters.
I’m sure they are happy to continue to take donations. Here is the fundraising page: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/seb-memorial
Target achieved and even slightly exceeded and in just 12 hours. It’s things like this that makes us as a club and as a set of fans different. I look forward to seeing the memorial.
Well done to Brogue Stevens and CAST for the initiative.
