ICA Sports Football Club’s Under-8 Girls team has received a welcome £250 cash boost from the Larkfleet Homes Community Fund.
The donation will help to purchase a new playing kit for all the players and the Larkfleet Homes logo will take pride of place on the back of the playing kit above the squad numbers.
Peterborough-based ICA Sports Football Club hosted its first ever girls-only football session In February 2015. As the sessions continued and news of its work spread, the club has kept growing.
For the 2018/19 season, ICA Sports is running girls-only squads at every age group from Under-8 to Under-15, providing organised league football for girls in school years 1 to 10.
The Larkfleet Homes Community Fund supports groups which enhance or develop local communities. It makes grants to charities or voluntary organisations within ten miles (16 kilometres) of any housing development by Larkfleet Homes or Allison Homes, both part of The Larkfleet Group of Companies.
Karl Hick, CEO of Larkfleet Homes, said: “A community is more than just houses. When we are building new homes, we want to support the local groups that our residents can participate in to help build a real community.”
