Disability Football club gets £1,000 from Bexhill Rotary.
On Monday 22nd January Bexhill Rotary’s Immediate Past President Perry Puddefoot attended the AGM of the Trustees of the 1066 Specials Disability Football Club to present the club with a cheque for £1,000.
The donation, which Perry Puddefoot presented to 1066 Specials Chairman and Head Coach Paul Anderson, came from part of the monies raised during Bexhill Rotary’s recent Christmas collections where the public were very generous with their donations.
The 1066 Specials was formed back in 2003 by Bexhill Rotarian Harold Lawrence who saw the need for a football club locally for children and adults challenged by disability or special needs in a friendly and fun environment. Regular training sessions are themed to give a stimulating and interesting experience for participants with the friendly ethos of the club helping to build confidence, self esteem and friendships.
The club is a 100% voluntary organisation which is why Bexhill Rotary Club is keen to support such a worthwhile venture. All coaches and everybody else involved with this club give their time willingly and all volunteers are welcomed and truly valued.
Since the 1066 Specials started, the club has made strong progress and helped many people along the way. The club has won several awards including Sussex Sports Partnership Approved Club, Football Association Standard Club Award, and the Queens Award for Voluntary Service.
SPECIAL APPEAL The club is in need of MORE VOLUNTEER COACHES who will be given a warm welcome and full support – so, if there is anybody who can spare even a little time, then to find out more email Head Coach Paul Anderson on [email protected].
