With no football since Mid-December, Radlett’s Belstone FC have been very busy off the pitch, supporting a couple of charities, one at home and one abroad.
Locally, the Club have been supporting the Onestonegrove Community Centre Food Bank.
During the first lockdown the Community Centre produced and delivered over 60,000 food bank parcels and meals to families, the elderly and people living on their own, saving and distributing over a ton of surplus food every week.
Throughout November and December, Belstone’s management, players and parents, led by John Byrne (Under 13’s girls Manager and U10s boys’ coach), collected food donations that were added to the parcels that were delivered.
Further afield, the club, EYA Sports and 4-4-2 Sports have been helping George Bramble a former player and youth team coach with football in Africa.
In 2007, George had a traditional African wedding in Accra.
During his stay he got involved with a local football team made up of teenagers and local taxi drivers.
Since then, every time he returns to Ghana, he takes a couple of footballs and puts on training sessions at local schools.
EYA Sports and 4-4-2 Sports have donated dozens of new kits and old boots for players to wear in Ghana.
Thanks to everyone that has helped and donated.
