The Community Trust picked up the award last week
Luton Town FC Community Trust staff attended the prestigious Luton’s Best Awards 2016 last week to receive an award recognising community achievement having been voted winners in the Leisure and Culture category.
The Love Luton event held at Luton Hoo recognised the Trust’s work over the last year which has seen the numbers of participants rise to over 3,000 every week in all of the community projects operated by the Trust.
From free schools PE coaching to regional talent identification development centres for young players, from promoting the women’s and girls’ game to running adult disability football teams, the award recognised the wide range of projects that have made an impact on the leisure and cultural community landscape in Luton.
Head of Trust, Kevin Thoburn, commented: “The award recognises all of the hard work our growing team of dedicated coaches and educational staff have put in this year and just how much the Trust has grown in the last couple of years.
“It’s a recognition of how important the people of Luton feel about the position our football club occupies right at the heart of the many local communities that, combined, make Luton the great place it is today.”
