It’s been a big week for FBB with extensive coverage in the Evening Standard about our successful FBB
Youth Leadership campaign to get the Angell Town pitch refurbished. To top it all off, we were awarded with the London FA’s “Inclusion Partner of the Year” award on Wednesday evening at a ceremony at Wembley Stadium, to congratulate us for our work using football to promote social inclusion.
FBB’s Head of Partnerships Jasper Schlump received the award on behalf of FBB and said: “It was a brilliant award’s night organised by the London FA, rewarding fantastic grassroots football initiatives and inspirational individuals for all their efforts. I was really proud to receive this great recognition for our hard work on behalf of the Football Beyond Borders team. It was completely unexpected, but at the end of the day “Football for all” is a mantra we strongly believe in and what we strive for every day.”
One of our FBB Women’s coaches, Jahawir “JJ” Roble, was also presented with the “Young Volunteer of the Year” award for her role in setting up and coaching our Women’s Football project, the FBB Warriors, amongst a variety of other volunteer roles she has carried out at grassroots level in London.
She said: “Getting this award made me realise how important my role is as a volunteer. I am more motivated than ever and willing to give something back to grassroots football and more importantly the community.”
