A memorable night at the iconic Abbey Road Studios brought together players, staff, supporters and guests in aid of Street Soccer London.
In partnership with the tech-wealth management fund Y Tree, we organised the ‘Raise the Game’ Gala event. This event offered our guests a unique opportunity to witness the transformative impact that football has on the lives of our players, staff, and volunteers. The evening featured exciting fundraising activities, a diverse range of auction lots as well as first class entertainment.
The renowned British soul legend, Heather Small, along with local pop talent, Eloise Voila, set the stage on fire with their captivating musical performances. The three-time BRIT award winners, Scouting for Girls, ended the night on a high note, serenading guests with classics from the 00’s.
At Street Soccer, we believe in using football as a catalyst for change in boroughs where youth crime rates are alarmingly high. In 2022 alone, youth crime rates saw a distressing 20% increase. Our aim is to be part of the solution by creating an inclusive and welcoming community through the power of football. Our weekly Street Soccer sessions offer structure, routine, and purpose to our players while providing them access to vital support services.
Through these initiatives, Street Soccer London is making a positive impact within the local community and is committed to expanding this work further. Founder and CEO, David Duke, highlighted the tremendous efforts put into delivering the ‘Raise the Game’ event and the impact it will have.
“There’s been an incredible amount of work that has went into this event and we’ve been delighted with the support we’ve received. The event showcases the achievement of our players and the dedication of the staff and volunteers who make it happen on a weekly basis.
The ‘Raise the Game’ event also allows us to reach even more players in the community and provide access to new support networks and opportunity, in a time where we know that level of support is needed more than ever.”
