Join In as #KentFAThanksU

We are thrilled to launch #KentFAThanksU – the Kent FA’s biggest celebration of our volunteers.

From the 1st to 14th May 2017, we will be shinning the spotlight on Kent’s football volunteers.

We encourage clubs and leagues from across Kent to get involved by sending, tweeting and posting photos and saying thanks to the amazing volunteers that make football in Kent happen.

Over the course of the two weeks Kent FA Youth Council ambassadors and staff will be surprising some of our very special volunteers with thank you gifts. Our website will also be the home of articles showcasing some of our volunteers as well as tips and advice on how clubs and leagues can recruit and retain volunteers.

The #KentFAThanksU campaign is led by the Kent FA Youth Council, together with the Kent FA.

Get your club and league involved

If you’re a member of a local football club or league, then you’ll know how valuable volunteers are.

We have launched a toolkit full of useful resources so clubs and leagues can make the most of the campaign. #KentFAThanksU is your chance to celebrate volunteers and help keep them motivated.

We want the #KentThanksU campaign to reach out to as many of our football family as possible and social media is a great way to do this.
