WCHG Help Support Local Football Team

Wythenshawe Community Housing Group have helped to raise over £800 for a local football team by holding a 5-aside Football Tournament.

The Housing Group held the tournament to help raise awareness and funds for Wythenshawe Amateur Football Club – who have been taking part in the ‘Budweiser Club Futures Competition’ to help win 100k for a new clubhouse for the team.

Housing Associations and Businesses from across Manchester took part in the competition, at the Woodhouse Park Lifestyle Centre, to show their support for the campaign and help raise money for this great cause.

Teams that took part in the competition include The Image Group, Magenta Living, Wythenshawe Amateurs, Weaver Vale and Wythenshawe Community Housing Group.

Chief Executive of Wythenshawe Community Housing Group Nigel Wilson said, “We are delighted to show our support for this great cause and help Wythenshawe Amateurs achieve their goal of a new club house.  Thanks to everyone who made this event a huge success and we hope to hold similar events in the future! Thank you to both Astwood Design and DLP who made very kind donations to this fantastic cause.”

Chairman of Wythenshawe Amateurs Basil Kabbani said, “Our aim is to have our own football ground which will benefit everyone in the local area and this is a tremendous gesture by Wythenshawe Community Housing Group to organise this competition for us. It is great to have their support for our campaign and we see the Group as an important partner in our efforts to build our own club house.”

Chair of the WCHG Board Eddy Newman said, “It’s hugely important for the Group to show their support for fantastic local causes such as this wherever we can. It is also an excellent opportunity to showcase the fantastic facilities that the Woodhouse Park Lifestyle Centre has to offer to other Housing Associations from across Manchester.”
