KIND GESTURE: Kings Langley Football Club launch festive project supporting local families  

 Published on: 18th November 2021   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Kings Langley FC (KLFC) are inviting families to the pitch this Christmas as part of their community engagement project.

The club are inviting families who are eligible as part of the government’s pupil premium scheme to attend their home game on December 27.

Families who are eligible can attend the game completely free of charge as a special gift at Christmas time.

Dean Wigzell, community engagement officer at KLFC, said the free tickets will help provide a special occasion for families who may be having a tough time.

He said: “Darren and the board have kindly allowed me to reach out to local primary schools, enabling me to invite families from those schools who are eligible for pupil premium.

“If they wish to attend, they can attend completely free of charge courtesy of the board.

“We are really conscious that Christmas this year could be so much more difficult for families than previously.

“We want to provide a day out for families, that they may not be able to afford normally.”

Dean added their partnership with Kings Langley Foodbank at All Saints Church has been a roaring success so far.

He said: “Our food bank donation drive has been going really well. We’ve been shocked at how generous people have been.

“Our own fans have got on board but away fans have also supported it.

“We will be attending the Christmas Tree Festival at All Saints. It will be another way of supporting the church in addition to the food bank.”
