Tom Parish is an 88-year-old tea boy. No age discrimination in this job! He has worked at Nottingham Forest Football Club for 35 years. Starting off as a steward, he eventually worked his way up to become the tea boy—a prestigious honour. His job is to make tea and coffee for managers, players, directors, photographers—really anyone at the club who wants a cup. At 88 years old, Tom loves nothing more than to see his beloved football team win, and has no plans to retire.
