The Saints Community Project at Brackley Town FC would like to express a huge thanks to Tesco Bags of Help Grants Programme and all of the local people in Brackley that chose to support the project with their shopping tokens. The project was awarded £2000 grant for tv/visual aids equipment to be used for the many themed days that are organised.
The project started in September 2015, and was set up to support people who may feel isolated and lonely in our community and enable them to build a friendship and support network.
The coffee mornings are open to everyone, promoting social inclusion. We have a large number of elderly residents people with learning disabilities and those with mental health issues attending the coffee morning every Wednesday and the project is still growing.
On Wednesday the Project showcased their new equipment at their "New Years Race Day" at Brackley Town Football Club. Project Leader, Kim Grantham and Football Club Chairman, Francis Oliver, unveiled the equipment and a few members of the project with Debbie and James from Tesco Brackley, cut the ribbon.
Janene Butters, Managing Director, said "Another memorable day for the project at the club. Without the support from the elderly members, out faithful army of volunteers, funding partners and strong organisation from Kim these moments would not be able to happen. May this project continue to grow from strength to strength and enjoy many more great memories"
