Club kit bears logo to raise awareness

Romford Borough Youth FC will be helping to promote Noah’s Big Charity (NBC) from this season onwards.

NBC support and provide special Neonatal intensive care equipment for The Royal London Basildon Hospitals and the club will display the charities logo on all home kit and equipment.

That will see more than 180 boys and girls, ranging in age from nine to 15, sporting the logo on their kit and the club hope that in future years, babies who are helped by the charity’s actions can become part of the Romford Borough football family.

Charity founder Richard Hobden said: “We were delighted to be approached by Andy Pearson and Neil Wilkinson of Romford Borough Youth FC, who wished to support Noah’s Big Charity.

“As well as raising funds for the Neonatal Intensive Care Units we support, we aim to raise awareness of premature birth and the life-saving work undertaken everyday.

“Romford Borough Youth FC’s thoughtful gesture to adorn their kits across all age groups with the Noah’s Big Charity logo helps us do just this and works on multiple fronts.

“It exposes the players, their families, supporters and even opposition to our cause, rallying support. It also shows the real supportive ethos of Romford Borough Youth FC, which at our heart is our shared aim, to help others.

“We are delighted to be associated with Romford Borough Youth FC and wish all the teams and coaches good luck for the coming season!”

Richard and wife Lydia attended the club’s regular training session at Westlands Playing Field in Romford on Saturday to pose for a photo with the teams displaying their new kit.
