The last 9 months have been a challenge for Corey following a fracture to the navicular bone in his right foot, but he is now on the road to recovery and progressing back to full fitness for the 2017 competition season.

Corey recently featured in an article in The Guardian’s Saturday colour magazine – the full article is available here:

We wish Corey all the best in his recovery from injury and hope to see him back competing soon.

Tesco’s Bags of Help


The Trust has secured funding from Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative to create it’s own football pitches/multi-sports area on land at Kingswood School, Lansdown.  This exciting development will provide a hub for use by the district schools’ football teams, local primary schools, and provide a venue for school holiday camps run by the Trust.

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 416 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store from 26 September to 9 October on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards. In total, there is over £12.5 million up for grabs.
