Junior Football Club Volunteering on Festival Day
Our footballing friends at Lostock Hall Juniors Football Club are giving a helping hand at Leyland Festival by providing a group of volunteers to staff one of the busy entrance gates to Worden Park.
We really appreciate all our volunteers – Leyland festival simply couldn’t happen without all the amazing people who give their time, energy and skills. We thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts!
Lostock Hall Juniors Football Club was established in 1978. It was one of the founder members of the Central Lancashire Junior Football League and currently consists of 37 teams – that’s over 600 children and young people!
LHJFC has been recognised locally and nationally for its contribution to the community, and was honoured with The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (the MBE for voluntary groups) in June 2018, one of only a couple of grassroots juniors football clubs across the country to receive the prestigious award since its inception in 2012.
The club is currently planning for its 11th annual football festival in July and already preparing for next season.
LHJFC continues to search for available land that it can call a home, which will further develop the club in the boys, mixed and girls sections, as well as introducing new teams for young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. It is also always looking for volunteers and sponsors for teams, the club, projects and/or events. If you think you can help in any way, please get in touch with them.
