We are proud to support the girls’ football clubs and volunteers that enable girls in the New Forest to play football and the chance to play in non-competitive games at the Under 10’s Festival of Football.

Alison Cottle, branch manager at our Southampton branch, volunteered on the day, helping to set up and hand out certificates and goody bags to all the girls that took part. The Society also paid for new water bottles for the team.

Gazz Davison, NFGFL League Secretary, said: “A superb event where every girl had a great morning of football. On behalf of everyone playing, watching, managing and coaching many thanks for Leeds Building Society’s sponsorship, it is greatly appreciated.”
