AFC Wimbledon’s Foundation are one of three clubs in the running for the Community Project of the Year Award.
AFC Wimbledon will be vying with QPR and Brentford for the accolade at this year’s prestigious London Football Awards, to be staged in just under three weeks time.
Foundation Director Philip Rudling attended the recent launch event for the big night and is pleased that the work of his team in the Wimbledon community, for their Women and Girls programme, has been recognised.
“We put in one of our programmes for consideration before Christmas,” said Philip. “I’m still fairly new to the position, but I felt it was our strongest project - so we applied to be a nominated club and we were delighted when we were shortlisted along with QPR and Brentford.”
The Foundation runs sixteen sessions a week, ranging from primary school age of eight to adults over 20 years old.
Phillp, along with Sports Development and Inclusion Officer Emma O’Connor and the Foundation’s Georgia Heasman – who also plays as a striker for AFC Wimbledon Ladies, gave their reaction to our official YouTube channel – which can be seen via the link below.
