The club was delighted to see its Community Trust awarded Community Club of the Year at the National League’s Gala Dinner event.
The Trust, which has celebrated its 25th year of work within the local community this season, was handed the gong ahead of stiff competition from across the three divisions.
It comes during a year that’s seen the Community Trust and Harriers work closely together to deliver provision across the region from ages three to 63 and beyond!
From Walking Football, Man v Fat and countless tournaments and events at Aggborough (see below), the work has been recognised in style with the award from the National League Trust.
Head of the Harriers Football in the Community Trust Nick Griffiths said: “It’s fantastic to have been named Club of the Year again, especially as it covers all three National League divisions.
“…the response we’ve had again this year has been brilliant…” Nick Griffiths
“It is even more special to be given the award in our 25th year, a time where we’ve been looking back at what we have achieved so far and also working hard to strengthen what we do going forward.
“From our Anklebiters courses for three-year-olds plus, to the walking football for older adults, we provide a real, local sporting provision for everyone in the community and the response we’ve had again this year has been brilliant.
“We’ve worked closer than ever with the football club and its staff to promote that work and get messages out there; it has been a real team effort so to have that recognised is great.”
