£500 donation to Brinscall Village JFC

Brinscall Village JFC are an FA Charter standard development club. They currently have 17 teams who play their games in either the mid Lancashire Colts Junior Football League (u7-u10s) or the Central Lancashire Junior Football League (u11-u16). BVJFC aims to provide local boys and girls with an opportunity to play football in a safe & enjoyable learning environment.Brinscall Juniors

Like many grassroots sports clubs, Brinscall relies heavily upon the support and involvement of parents, who volunteer as both coaches and members of the club committee.

Next season, the U13 Reds (who are growing at a rapid rate) will be playing in the premier division of the Central Lancashire Junior Football League.

The team is made up of 15 players from the local area, many of whom have been playing with the club since U7.

Due to how quickly the juniors grow, the team were in need of a new kit for the upcoming season. Epic Kidz donated £500 to allow the U13 to purchase their new kit for the upcoming season.

The team have said “It’s been a fantastic boost to the team. Their current kits are outgrown and this has allowed us to go ahead an order the new kit in time for the new season”.

£1000 to talented gymnast Abbie Dawson


Abbie Dawson is an up and coming talented gymnast. She has been training at Wigan and Ashton Gymnastics club since she was 5 years old. In 2014 she was asked to train with a well established Team Gymnastics club at Crewe and Nantwich and is part of their Junior Team who were British Champions in 2015. They are hoping to regain their title in July at the British Championships at the Echo Arena. ABBIE EPIC KIDZ
About a year ago Abbie was selected by the head coach at Crewe to attend trials for the National team where she was successful in obtaining a place on their Senior Womens team. As a result, Abbie will now represent Great Britain at the European Team Gymnastics Championships in Slovenia in October 2016.
Abbie already has a British Gymnastics gold medal and would love to get a European gold with her team. Her dream is to appear at the Olympics one day but currently Team Gymnastics is not considered an Olympic sport at this present moment in time.
The expenses of getting to and competing in Slovenia are extremely costly so the Dave Hitchen Fund stepped in and have given Abbie a grant of £1000 to allow her to travel and compete in the European Championships.
We wish Abbie good luck for October and hopefully we will see her face at the Olympics in the future.
