Each month, one local community cause, club or charity is selected to receive £100 from Swansgate shopping centre in Wellingborough as part of their Community Chest initiative and the latest winners are Whitworth FC.
Whitworth is a football club which has teams from Under 8’s right the way through to the Veteran age group and welcomes all abilities to join in and enjoy local football. It is a busy club run by volunteers who are constantly developing opportunities to enable the Community to access grassroots football.
Liz Armstrong, Social Secretary, says “Training is an important part of football and we will be putting the money towards some training bibs to help us with the ongoing work of providing accessible sport to young people. We are absolutely thrilled to have been chosen as the May recipient of the Swansgate Community Chest.”
Lindsay Tickner, Centre Manager says, “We love to be able to support members of our local community and our Community Chest initiative is a great way of doing just this. Being able to choose a deserving cause each month is fantastic.”
