The Adam Stansfield Foundation has visited our school and kindly donated a ‘Football Pack’ to ensure that Adam’s legacy continues to live on in the County. Adam became a firm Hereford United fans favourite after arriving at Edgar Street in 2004. He was a key member of the Play-Off winning side that saw The Bulls promoted into the Football League in 2006. The Foundation was set up in Adam’s name after he lost his battle against bowel cancer in August 2010. The Foundation aims to support youngsters at grassroots level and in schools to enjoy a healthy lifestyle through football.
“We are a small family charity supporting individuals, schools and teams in Somerset, Herefordshire and Devon. We support disability teams, including Powerchair, Deaf, Downs Syndrome and Ability Counts teams. We also support Under 16’s in completing their FA Football Leaders Award (the first coaching award you can achieve).
Last year the foundation started their ‘Primary Schools Initiative’. “We realised that school finances were being cut year on year and receiving many grant requests from them, we decided to become pro-active to ensure that teachers had the resources to do their jobs properly.
Adam’s foundation have delivered a pack worth £300 to school. The pack consists of:-
2 x pop up goals
5 x size 3 footballs
5 x size 4 footballs
10 x hurdles
1 x parachute
1x resistance belt
50 x cones
5 x hoops
2 x agility ladders
ball pump and whistle
We are delighted to receive this excellent pack from Adam’s Foundation and look forward to using the equipment with the children in the coming months.
