Boreham Wood Football Club are both extremely delighted and extremely proud to be hosting The FA Women’s National League Charity Trophy 2018 at Meadow Park, this Sunday, August 12 (2pm).
The match will be raising funds for the community affected by the Grenfell Tower fire, with proceeds going to two local charities, The Grenfell Foundation and the Harrow Club.
The prestigious fixture, which is for a truly amazing cause, is going to be an unmissable day of family football and fun, so make sure that you get down to Meadow Park and support it.
We are absolutely delighted to be hosting such an incredible match and helping a truly amazing cause. So, please get down to Meadow Park and support everyone in their efforts to make this event a huge success.
The Grenfell Foundation and The Harrow Club have been ever present supporters within the community before, during and after the fire. The monies raised from the game will continue to focus on mental health and wellbeing and to offer the much-needed respite breaks away from the area and the visual image of the Tower seen day in day out.
The event will see an FA WNL Select Team take on a host of Ex-England AllStars managed by former Arsenal Ladies legend Vic Akers, OBE including Kelly Smith, Rachel Yankey, Marianne Spacey, Faye White, Rachel (McArthur) Stowell, Emily Westwood, Jodie Handley, Rachel Unitt, Katie Chapman, Angie Banks, Kim Jerray Silver, recently appointed Manchester United Women’s Manager, Casey Stoney and a host of other Ex England AllStar players.
FA WNL Chairman Carol West said: “The Grenfell Tower tragedy continues to affect those that lost friends, family and loved ones as well as those still living in its shadow in the local community. We are honoured and humbled to be able to have the opportunity to support such deserving charities and hope we get a decent crowd to raise as much money as possible.”
Former Arsenal and England star Kelly Smith said: “The Grenfell tragedy was horrific and touched so many people, when I was asked to get involved in this game, I jumped at the chance. It will be great to catch up with former team-mates and friends, and hopefully we can raise a lot of money for this great cause.”
