Cricklewood Wanderers FC is a project of Youth engagement Solutions (YES), a charity, that aims to support disadvantaged young people to have more fulfilled lives by engaging them in health and well being activities, education and sports.
We have just stated an U15 girls team. 13 and 14 years old who for the first time compete at Capital Girls League and who access our educational, personal development, mental health support, health and nutrition services and one to one support. They live in Brent and surrounding boroughs, from different cultural backgrounds and are keen to breakdown stereotypes.
Despite being very young, they are very determined young girls who work hard to become great team football players, getting up at 7am to attend 11 a-side matches across London under zero temperatures.
The tenacity, perseverance and team spirit matches the "Lioness Pride" given nickname.
YES, our charity ,needs urgent funds to be able to provide them with right equipment and warm clothing to be able to train and compete in the winter months so they can give their best in healthier conditions.
Your funds will ensure they keep warm and motivated throughout the coming winter. Please help us to help them!
