‘The Club is the Hub’ – WE NEED YOUR VOTE

Annan athletic have won through to the finals of the Peoples Lottery and now have the potential to win an award of £50,000 for community projects. The finals take the form of a ‘head to head’ vote against another charity which is televised at 6 pm on ITV Border local news programme. Our competition takes place on Wednesday 27th November and takes the form of a telephone vote for support. Votes can be cast from 9 am to midnight on Wednesday.

Annan Athletic Football Club are a Community Football Club that play in League 2 in Scottish Football League, founded in 1942 we are run by volunteers. Most people think of a football club and a match at 3 o’clock on a Saturday.

 At Galabank we do much more than this, we have we approximately 2000 local people using the facilities every week, the range of activities is already diverse.

We have a responsibility that extends to all in our community.

We want our facilities to be used from Dawn to Dusk.

We need your votes to help us, to help us create a Hub in the Community operating as a centre for health and wellbeing focusing on all, regardless of gender, age, race, sexual orientation, class, special needs, culture or social status.

With your help we will deliver new programmes: introducing breakfast clubs, lunchtime clubs, after school clubs, we can do more, we want to do more.

Of course we can and will still have football and have fun but working with our youngsters we will address bullying, healthy living, road safety, substance misuse, truancy, racism and so much more.

We value everyone in our Community, our lunchtime and early afternoon clubs will provide an opportunity for the elderly to exercise and socialise.

The phone number to call will be released on Wednesday, the day of voting, you can vote up to 10 times from each phone.

Please wait until Wednesday to vote and a further brief on the day or the Annan Athletic web site , Twitter  and facebook accounts will give you the number to call at lunch time or when you get home.
