Jim Stannard

As a lifelong (1964- to date) fan of Gillingham, I was disappointed to hear that our goalkeeping legend, Big Jim Stannard needed an urgent operation. It would have been rude of me not to try to help. I hope you can too.

Jim in his Gillingham days

Jim played over 120 games for Gillingham and a further 400+ games at Fulham in a long and successful career between the sticks. Sadly, he now needs an operation for a prostate issue and a Just Giving has been set up to assist in raising £10,000. With the ongoing Covid crisis, the NHS waiting list is over one year, hence the need for funds for private treatment. I am proud to say that Gillingham Football Club generously offered £1,000 and other amounts large and small are pouring in. There is a way to go and if you can help, please visit the official Just Giving page here
