Football club to be recognised for charity efforts at reception with Mayor of Gedling


A football club which recently scooped a national award for their contribution to the community are to be recognised at a reception hosted by the Mayor of Gedling.

Gedling Southbank, which runs 30 teams that all play at grounds across the borough, recently picked up the Charter Standard Community Club award from the FA – a national award which recognises the efforts of clubs that fundraise for local community causes.

Club chairman, Adrian Hall and vice chairman Ken Steele were recently invited to collect the prestigious prize from 1966 World Cup winner Sir Geoff Hurst at Wembley before kick-off at the Community Shield match between Leicester City and Manchester United.

Now the club are to be rewarded for their efforts closer to home with a reception in their honour being organised at Gedling Borough Council’s Civic Centre in Arnot Hill Park on September 22.

The reception will be hosted by current Mayor of Gedling, Sandra Barnes.

Despite the recent accolades, Gedling Southbank won’t be resting on their laurels and plans are already in place for more fundraising efforts this year to raise cash for local good causes.
