Three Dorset clubs have had a financial boost this week following successfully winning funding from the Aviva Community Fund!
Congratulations to Broadstone, Corfe Mullen United Juniors and Longfleet Youth Football Clubs who received £1,000 each to help develop specific areas within their club.
Broadstone have accessed the funding to go towards the purchase of a storage container at the club’s home ground. Corfe Mullen United Juniors plan to use the funding to further their development of the girls game. Longfleet Youth will be utilising the much needed funding to support their Football Futures young volunteer workforce.
So all three clubs will benefit hugely from this injection of funding to support them in sustaining and growing the grassroots football they offer.
Dee Cooper, Longfleet Youth FC Club Secretary, commented: ‘We are very pleased! It will go some way to supporting the Football Futures volunteers in courses and printing of our own journal that has been designed by a couple of club members which is still being finalised.’
Justine Mosley, Dorset FA Development Manager, said: ‘It’s great to see Aviva supporting grassroots youth football. All our clubs are run by volunteers who spend countless hours ensuring a safe and fun environment for young people to play football in Dorset. All three clubs are FA Charter Standard Clubs and are so very deserving of this funding. Thank you Aviva on behalf of the clubs and Dorset FA.’
