This is the time of the year when traditionally football clubs get involved with the local community. It fosters goodwill for the club and adds to the sparkle as Christmas approaches.
Luton Town Football Club (LTFC) have a strong relationship with easyJet, based at Luton Airport, which goes back many years. The club currently sits at the top on League Two and remains in the Emirates FA Cup.
The airline and soccer team have announced that their joint Free Schools Visit community programme, which provides every primary school in Luton and Bedfordshire a free physical education session with the club, has now reached over 50,000 individual school children across the region.
Since 2008 the project has provided primary schools with support in improving the provision of PE and sport and physical activities. The scheme has also been extended to offer female coaching sessions at every high school and further education college in Bedfordshire.
Representatives from easyJet, the football club and local school children, marked the milestone with an on-pitch presentation at half time during a recent match.
Sophie Dekkers director UK market easyJet said: “As stakeholders in the local community easyJet and LTFC share many of the same goals and it’s great that we have been able to help provide 50,000 local children with PE lessons since 2008”. www.easyjet.com www.lutontown.co.uk
