Tonbridge Angels scoop Community Club of the Year Award: The challenge now is to grow our efforts and become a greater force for good within Tonbridge
TONBRIDGE ANGELS have been awarded Community Club of the Year for their division at the Isthmian League’s Annual General Meeting last Saturday.
The Angels were up against 23 other clubs across the South East and East Anglia and the Longmead Stadium club came out on top through their work across various projects benefiting the local community.
Since becoming supporter owned in 2015, the Bostik Premier club has worked within the community for the benefit of local organisations and individuals.
The judges particularly noted the work done in providing free heart screening for 900 young people, opportunities given for people of all skill levels to become involved in the game and the facilitation of a number of fund raising activities for local charities.
Steve Churcher, the club’s chairman, told www.tonbridgeangelsonline.co.uk: “We were delighted to win the first ever Community Club of the Year organised by our League.
“As a supporter owned club we aim to work within the community and through a lot of hard work by people connected with the club in various capacities, this is exactly what we have done.
“The challenge, of course, now is to grow our efforts and become a greater force for good within Tonbridge.”
