Barnet Walking Football along with Barnet FC first team players and the Foundation recently delivered donations to Edgware Primary School and Watling Park School as part of the Stationery for Schools Scheme.
Stationery for Schools provides local schools and groups with equipment and essential supplies. By encouraging the local community to donate an array of unneeded stationery, it can help with budgeting issues amid a financially challenging period.
Teachers and children were delighted to receive these donations during a difficult period for schools across the country.
Headteacher of Edgware Primary School, Alison Jacob, said:
“Schools are really struggling financially at the moment and budgets are tight.
“We have lots of children from disadvantaged backgrounds and to give them what they need and give them extra help is amazing.”
First-team players, Aymen Azaze and Dominic Revan were delighted to chat with primary school children who were given a real insight into what it is like as a professional footballer, including Dom Revan answering that Mo Salah is the hardest player he has had to man-mark!
Foundation Manager, Dan Barton, said:
“As a football club we have a duty to support our local community and schools, it is therefore fantastic to see local students interact with our first-team players.
“The Stationery for Schools scheme is more important than ever right now, and we are delighted to support the Barnet Walking Football team with it.”
All Barnet supporters are asked to contact the Walking Football team if they are in a position to make a donation to the Stationery for Schools scheme – Barneteft@yahoo.com
