Jamie Edwards, Head of Community, is proud of the work that his team have done and the achievements they made over the last 12 months; “We have hit some huge figures, 7,000 unique participants, over 800 young students received our literacy programme ‘Reading the Game’ and over 2400 hours were delivered in community settings, said Jamie.
“This is a fantastic effort from our staff and volunteers working with people from the ages of 4 up to 94.
“The annual review shows a few case studies of people on our courses and projects showing where they have come from and where they have progressed to.
“One great stat highlighted is that since the charity started in 2008 we have invested over £1.4 million into the local community, and from a standing start that is something that we and the football club are very proud of.”
