Foundation Shortlisted For National Award

WE are delighted to announce we have been shortlisted as a finalist at the Community Sport and Recreation Awards 2023 which will be held at Twickenham .

The Community Sport and Recreation Awards is a nationally-recognised awards programme organised by the Sport and Recreation Alliance and we are on a shortlist of three, nominated for the Youth Development Award for our work on our Premier League programmes – Kicks, Primary Stars, Inspires and Targeted – over the last year.

The winner will be crowned at an awards ceremony on Friday March 17th at Twickenham Stadium, the home of English Rugby. The awards will be presented by the Sport and Recreation Alliance’s President, HRH The Earl of Wessex, and the winners will also each receive £1,000.

On being named a finalist, Head of MFC Foundation Lynsey Edwards said: “This is a great honour and we’re humbled to be shortlisted.

“We’re proud of what we do in those programmes which are delivered by enthusiastic and inspirational staff who want the best for the participants. They’re thrilled by this, we all are.”

The Sport and Recreation Alliance’s Community Sport and Recreation Awards have been running for over 25 years, and are an annual celebration of grassroots clubs, organisations and individuals.

The awards celebrate the full breadth of sport and recreation, with previous winners including Panathlon Challenge, Brighton Table Tennis Club, Nottingham Croquet Club, Newcastle United Foundation, and Billingham Boxing Academy.
