FAW MCDONALD'S GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL AWARDS 2021 | COMMUNITY CLUB OF THE YEAR - ABER VALLEY

By TERRY ALLDAY

A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO ABER VALLEY FROM THE SWAL!

Aber Valley FC are a great example of a club who have connected with their community since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Their valley suffered as badly as any part of Wales, in terms of job losses and they were in the Caerphilly Borough, which was locked down for longer than any other local authority in Wales.

But during that time, a group of hero volunteers emerged out of the valley’s football club to provide hope to struggling families in the form of a boot room and a food bank that ensure no child goes without in their tight-knit community.

Each week donations continue to be received and players from the senior team give up their free time to sort and deliver the parcels to deliver to those in need in their community.

As well as coaching their teams, all the Aber Valley coaches, from under 5 to senior, give up their time to provide an amazing service to those in need in their community.
