Local youth football team takes their new kit to the pitch thanks to Community

Community - 17th October 2018

“We share many values…”

The trade union Community recently had the opportunity to contribute towards a football kit for a local under 7’s football team.

Upon hearing about Sedgley & Gornal United under 7 Football Club’s call out for donations to renew the kit, Community’s local regional office in the midlands were able to pledge £500. This allowed the club to purchase the new kits, with Community’s logo printed on the front.

Speaking at the cheque presentation, Regional Secretary for Community in the Midlands Gavin Miller said “We share many of the core values of football, such as teamwork, passion and community spirit, so to be able to be a part of what this club are doing for the next generation was a proud moment for us.

“We’re keen to continue supporting great work such as this, so I encourage any members who feel our support may be of use to get in touch.”

We support causes that our members care about across the UK every day. If you want us in your corner, you can join Community by clicking here.
