BURSARY

LFS Bursary Fund

As many of you will know, the Parent and Carers Committee has traditionally run a number of events throughout the year to raise money for bursaries to support children and families who would otherwise not be able to access the great coaching and community provided by London Football School.

Today, through the provision of finance generated by our fundraising, we subsidise 100 – 130 children per term to guarantee they can access team training and Football School sessions. Sadly, as a result of the pandemic and the cost of living crisis, we are finding more families than ever needing this support and the number of applications has risen sharply.

We have therefore been thinking of other ways that people can help support these children and their families in continuing to access all that LFS has to offer. We have agreed with Ellen and Ben to create a subscription service where people can make a monthly donation that will go directly towards maintaining our bursary funds. There is also an option to make a single donation if preferred. We would be incredibly grateful for any donations that people are willing to make.

We have very limited funds available for this term and the parents association will help as many families as they can.

You can make a one-off or a regular donation to the bursary fund below:

Our Bursary fundraising Events

LFS Film Night 🍿🎬

& Raffle! 🎟️

In May 2024, we hosted a private screening of the amazing documentary film ‘Next Goal Wins’ with thanks to producer & LFS Parent, Mike Brett & the fantastic Pleasance Theatre, Islington.

It was a real pleasure to have Eli Mengem from Copa 90 join us to ask the questions with Eden Lentin, an LFS Player who both jointly lead the Q+A absolutely brilliantly.

The raffle prizes were donated from Misha Sher (LFS Parent and player representative), our sponsors @meatlondon, the @nationalhempservice, and the Pleasance Theatre! Thank you all so much!

LFS Bike Ride 🚴

In May 2023, to celebrate that we’d been recognised by the Premier League as a grassroots club they’re supporting, we cycled to all the London Premier League & Championship clubs by bicycle in one day.

9 London stadiums visited, 82km cycled, 24 riders and many more people involved making it a memorable event for an excellent cause.

Thank you so much to everybody who sponsored the bike ride.
