In early December we put on a Christmas raffle within the club with some fantastic prizes put together by each team, and we managed to raise a massive £675!
50% of the money raised went to the club, which will support the football we play in 2021, and the other 50% went towards buying food supplies for the local food bank and charity Loveworks.
Loveworks are based out of Merstham and Reigate and help support local residents in need. In 2020 their support has been needed more than ever with the global pandemic hitting people hard. So we wanted to give back to our local community and help those people in need. We have some individuals in our ESG family who volunteer for Loveworks each week, and so selecting Loveworks as the charity we wanted to support was an easy decision.
To find out how to get more involved with Loveworks and how they help support local Reigate and Banstead residents, take a look at their website.
We wanted to say a HUGE thank you to our ESG family for donating prizes for the raffle and money towards our massive total. And a massive thank you to those who gave up their time to come and help make the food donation. We're so proud to be able to help our local community and hopefully can inspire our girls to see the importance of playing a part in supporting those around you.
We want to wish everyone a happy Christmas and we'll see you all again in the New Year!
