Hackney Wick Football Club

Posted By Hannah Davidson in News

A few weeks ago we were delighted to become a sponsor of Hackney Wick FC.

Founded by Bobby Kasanga, HWFC is a fan owned football club, set up to celebrate the diversity and community spirit of Hackney. The idea came to Bobby Kasanga during a gang crime related prison sentence, when he turned his life around and decided to give others the opportunities to do the same. The team are heavily involved in charity work and motivational speaking to local schools and youth groups, to help young people achieve their full potential. HWFC also has a community scheme where they reach out to elderly isolated residents and bring them to the matches.

You can watch Bobby discussing HWFC here and here.

This Saturday 19th September you can see them in action against Stonewall FC at Mabley Green. Kick off 3pm.
