Jack Petchey Foundation visit

Junior Reds welcomed Jane Evans -Grant Coordinator – from the Jack Petchey Foundation to Bexleyheath Academy on Saturday 2nd September. The club has worked closely with the Foundation for ten years, rewarding achievement for young people between the ages of 11 and 25. Jane was shown around by club coordinator – Clive Hall-Strutt. They spent time watching sessions and speaking to past winners. The Foundation were particularly interested in girls participation and took time out to speak with our new U14 Roses (pictured).

Jane commented “We are proud to have been working with Junior Reds FC for the last 10 years and to have awarded £24,850 in grants on our Achievement Award Scheme.  On a recent visit to the club I was delighted to see so many young people taking part in football activities across the 45 teams. It was wonderful to  see how girls football has developed into 9 teams over the past 4 years! Special recognition goes to  Cliver Hall-Strutt who coordinates the scheme at the club and to the many volunteers give up their time so tirelessly! Well done to you all!”
