Manningham Football Academy and All-stars is a football academy which aims to provide opportunities for young people aged 6 years – 30 years to play football. They participate in different leagues and competitions because of various age groups. The club has been running for more than seven years, it is based in Bradford West Yorkshire. Manningham is a British-Asian community area. The club provides a pathway of recreational football, coached football sessions, small sided games and affiliated teams. They approached Evergreen Partnership Association through West Yorkshire Sports to help them purchase a football kit for the juniors.
At Evergreen Partnership Association we realised the importance of the invaluable work done by the academy in bringing the community together, and we were delighted to support such a good cause. We helped them to purchase the football kit and it brought a lot of excitement to the juniors, we were told that there was a lot of positive energy when they were playing their games! We spoke to Kalil Hussain (Club co-ordinator), he mentioned that there is always a continued need to replace the equipment but they lack funding. We will continue to support such organisations in any way we can, because we believe in philanthropy.
