MFC will today be recognised as winners of the EFL Community Club of the Year Award for the North East & Yorkshire region at the Houses of Parliament.
We are one of six regional winners selected for the programmes we deliver in a number of important areas, including diversity and inclusion, education and health and wellbeing.
MFC Foundation launched a new community strategy with a core principle of ‘making a difference by being different.’
Through a number of specific projects, such as RiverSideBySide and ‘The Boro Bus’ it has been able to improve community cohesion, health provisions and education in one of the most deprived areas of the country for over 35,000 people.
MFC and the other five clubs will be honoured and will receive their awards at the House of Commons today (Monday 2 March).
The overall winner of the 2020 Community Club of the Year Award will be announced at the EFL Awards on Sunday 19 April in central London.
