At the beginning of July Jon Cruddas MP was contacted by a local resident of Barking and Dagenham who runs a newly launched adults football club called FC Glacier. The idea behind the club was to offer a place for those that love the game but have not made it as professional footballers. There are many career paths within the sport that can still be achieved without being a pro player and the club aims to help people realise their dreams.

FC Glacier are seeking funding to provide:

         - Football kits and attire

Jon Cruddas MP was recently contacted by the People’s Health Trust delivering the news that £18,595 in grant funding has been awarded to Young Stars Football First and their ‘Beam Park Walking Football’ project. The project engages with older people living in the Beam Park area of Dagenham and gets them involved in slow paced recreational exercise and social activities.
