“Case studies from around the country!

Here, we’re showcasing some of the great work done by clubs, delivery organisations and Sport England partners to keep people engaged and active during this period. Many of the ideas shown here are unique to the circumstances of individual clubs/groups – not all organisations will be able to do the same things, but a quick read can be a great source of inspiration!
Helping the Wider Community

Some clubs and organisations have made brilliant efforts in redirecting their resources to help the wider community. From offering up their facility for NHS use to delivering food parcels, they have helped out in a wide variety of ways during this very difficult time.

Wyrley Juniors FC

Wyrley Juniors FC is working hard to engage with their local community in Walsall in a number of ways. Their Under-8s girls’ side, nicknamed the Meerkats, recently put together a care package of treats, including coffee, biscuits and hand cream, for NHS staff at a local hospital ward to say thank you for their hard work. This followed a drive to collect donations and deliver goodies and PPE to two local care homes, including personal thank you notes for care workers from young players. The club also raised more than £800 in donations from members and their families for the local foodbank. Additionally, having recently cancelled a tournament scheduled for June, Wyrley Juniors gave participating teams the choice between a full refund or having their fee donated to the NHS – many of which are choosing the latter!
