Carnforth Rangers RAK Visit

Random Acts Of Kindness Day Delivery To Carnforth Rangers

A great show of generosity that emphasises the positives of the beautiful game

Carnforth Rangers were the first club to receive a ‘We Only Do Positive Respect’ pack for their Random Acts of Kindness Day prize during the U12 Girls training session on Monday evening.

As part of Lancashire FA’s ongoing commitment to engage closely with our clubs, Head of Football Delivery Jo Ashworth and Head of Marketing and Communications Helen Summers dropped in to deliver various items of branded training equipment to the club.

Seven clubs across the county were chosen last week on Random Acts of Kindness Day based on suggestions we were given of who would be deserving of this award.

Carnforth Rangers Club Secretary Casey Bragg said: “We are very pleased to be recognised in this way and it’s nice that the club is being rewarded for our continuous hard work and dedication to provide grassroots football for over 300 children in the Carnforth area. The items will be shared out amongst our junior teams at this weekend’s matches.”

Head of Delivery at Lancashire FA, Jo Ashworth, handed over the equipment and explained why it was important for the County FA to personally deliver the pack: “Even though our County FA has the largest number of clubs in the country, we are trying our best to engage with all of our clubs and nothing beats meeting with coaches, club secretaries and players in person at training sessions like these or at matches.

“We know how important it is for clubs to see us out and about and shows you that we are here for you, whether that’s listening to issues you may have or delivering prizes to deserving clubs like Carnforth Rangers.”

Although we weren’t aware of this at the time of announcing the winners, the club has recently made a £500 donation to Carnforth Community Swimming Pool to raise funds for their proposed £100,000 extension to improve the facility showing that good deeds, even when they go unnoticed, are rewarded and passed on.

Bragg added: “This local community facility at one stage or another, will have been used by nearly all of our past & present managers/coaches/players/members.

“We hoped that our donation can support the facility for the future generation. The pool manager was overjoyed with our donation.”

Lancashire FA will be delivering further sets of equipment to the other successful clubs over the coming weeks.
