Westend Juniors FA Grassroots Football Award
Community Project of the Year
On Saturday 7th August 2021, a group of young Westend Community Champions attended Wembley Stadium for the Annual FA Grassroots Football Awards sponsored by Macdonalds. The awards recognise outstanding volunteer actions from grassroots football clubs from across the UK whose commitment, energy, drive and tireless dedication improves the lives of others through the power of football.
The awards were attended by many famous footballing dignitaries including Sir Geoff Hurst. It was an unbelievable honour and experience for both children and us adults, as Sir Geoff spent at least five minutes asking about their work and the club. Certainly a memory; for those attending, we’ll cherish forever.
For our youngsters to be recognised on a national scale is both remarkable and truly humbling.
We’re so proud of each and everyone of our young volunteers who during the pandemic put their own challenges behind them to help the lives of others. Your compassion, kindness, selflessness and determination to support vulnerable families across local communities was simply awe inspiring and will be remembered for generations.
On behalf of everyone connected to Westend Juniors, the wider community, those families lives you helped and touched during the Pandemic thank you for making such a difference and doing yourselves, your families and Westend Juniors proud.
