AFC Fylde Community Foundation a big hit

A cold wet Saturday afternoon was not enough to deter AFC Fylde’s Community Foundation from showcasing its support for 12 amateur football clubs from Preston, Blackpool, the Fylde and Wyre.

Tom Hutton, Community Foundation Director observed: “A programme like “Train like a Pro” simply would not happen without the support of companies like Cuadrilla and Centrica and on behalf of the Foundation, we would like to place on record our thanks.

“This year has seen a four fold increase in the number of 8 to 12 year old children participating, all made possible by Cuadrilla and Centrica, who have donated £16,500 to help the Foundation continue to grow.”

The programme is designed to reward positive conduct and good school attendance, resulting in community wide friendships and  most importantly, giving the children the opportunity to experience a professional environment.

Francis Egan, CEO, Cuadrilla added: ” We are delighted to continue to support this successful programme for young people who may not normally have the opportunity to take part in such a scheme.

“Creating different kinds of learning opportunities for young people in the local area is important to us and this programme focuses on an age group that is going to stay in the community for many years to come.

“As part of our long term commitment to Lancashire we hope to create not just learning opportunities but also future jobs for young people as the shale gas industry grows in the county”
