City Central Youth FC – £1,000 Donation!
All those 5ps from carrier bags really have added up enabling Parkview Retail Ltd to help a few well deserving causes! After having a meeting with Scott (Chairman) and Gavin (Club Secretary) from City Central, it was clear that we had to help.
City Central is a small club making a really positive impact on the children in and around Southampton. A small group of parents give a huge amount of time, actively encouraging inner-city children from a wide range of backgrounds to get involved in not only developing their football skills but also their team-building and communications skills, along with the dedication and discipline required to train and play weekly in league matches and tournament competitions. All those who help with City Central (managers, coaches and committee members etc.) do so on a voluntary basis.
They are affiliated by Hampshire FA, have six teams in the Eastleigh and District Mini Soccer League and Southampton Tyro League, and currently have more than 50 boys and girls from the ages of six through to twelve as players.
We have supported football teams before by supplying kit, however this time Parkview Retail Ltd has made a donation of £1,000.00! The club is free to use these funds in any way they see fit (kit, equipment etc..); it was clear from our meeting they are masters of making a little go a long way, so we know the money will be well spent!
We will keep you updated on their progress!
