Birmingham City Football Club Player Awards
Blues are proud to announce that the 2018/19 BCFC Player Awards will celebrate the achievements of the men’s and women’s teams, in what is set to be a historic night for the club. The evening, held on Monday 6 May at the ICC in central Birmingham and sponsored by 888sport and Maple from Canada, will be a landmark occasion as this is first time in the Club’s history that the successes of both teams will be recognised, side-by-side, in one prestigious event.
Geoff Horsfield Foundation
Geoff Horsfield, one of the most respected sportsmen in the West Midlands, founded this project when he felt that he had a debt of gratitude to the local community. In May 2016, the Foundation opened its first project, a female only accommodation based in Erdington. The Foundation is now aiming to open a second housing project to help vulnerable adults who may have fallen through current support networks.
At the centre of this project are the more vulnerable, challenging people. After carrying out research, the Geoff Horsfield Foundation felt that their housing needs weren’t being met.
Birmingham & Solihull Women’s Aid
1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence at some time in their lives. In 70% of cases, children are also directly abused. They believe that women and children have the right to live free from violence, abuse and fear. For over 35 years, Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid has been supporting women and children by providing emergency refuge accommodation, a helpline, drop-in services, counselling, help with criminal and civil legal proceedings, outreach and family support.
