What a Great Fortnight As #KentFAThanksU!

We had a great fortnight celebrating #KentFAThanksU!

Over the last two weeks Kent football came together to say a very big #KentFAThanksU to its brilliant volunteer workforce.

From the 1st to 14th May 2018, we shinned the spotlight on Kent’s football volunteers with daily features on some of Kent’s brilliant volunteers while sharing good practice to support clubs and leagues to recruit and recognise its workforce.

The #KentFAThanksU campaign was led by the Kent FA Youth Council, together with the Kent FA and saw clubs and leagues from across Kent join in by tweeting and posting photos and saying thanks to the amazing volunteers that make football in their organisation happen.


Surprise, surprise!
Over the course of the two weeks the Kent FA Youth Council ambassadors and staff also carried out eight surprise visits and presentations to some of our very special volunteers. Below is a list of those volunteers who received a special #KentFAThanksU – you can click their name for pictures and videos of the presentation.
