Hendon FC Supporters Trust are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant by Wembley National Stadium Trust. This will allow us to upgrade the alarm system, install a new PA around the stadium and to replace the players tunnel with one that will feature the Hendon name with work expected to start before the end of the season.
The grant has been made available thanks to the activities at Wembley Stadium and an agreement that part of its gross annual takings are paid to an independent charitable grant making trust, which we successfully applied to.
We were also successful with another grant application last summer which has allowed us to set up a 2 year Mental Health & Football Project between Mental Health Services in Brent and Hendon FC to support people who face challenges in their everyday lives.
The project has shown great results already in improving mental health and wellbeing and some users have been able to start work, return to university with others completing their Level 1 in Certificate in Coaching Football.
Sessions take place on Thursday afternoons and the numbers attending has grown as word of the success of the project grows thanks to the great work of the session support workers and coaches.
