OneFamily customer, Freda Jackson secures £5k community award for Cheshire junior football club!

Posted in: Foundation

Reddish Villa JFC was formed in 1993 and is run entirely by volunteers. Children can join from as young as 3, and the club needed help to pay for those aged 3-7 to be coached at an indoor facility throughout the cold winter.

In a deprived area of Cheshire, the clubs volunteers work with over 250 children developing them in area such as discipline, social skills, communication, and fitness.

RVJFC is particularly close to Freda’s heart. She’s a volunteer, her grandson Gareth Curley is the club secretary and project leader, and his sister Amy is training to be a coach. Gareth’s nine year old son Joseph, and Freda’s other great grandson, three year old Leo Sutton, also play at the club.

It’s a real family affair, I’ll admit, and we’re absolutely thrilled that the people of Reddish voted for their junior football club to receive the funding from the Foundation.  We can do so much good with the money, so many of the children will really benefit.
