LFJ Community Leaders
An event celebrating achievements of all LFJ participants
Halema, Obed and Ferhat spent 2 months planning a event for all their fellow London Football Journeys participants, celebrating the various achievements and impacts they have made in their communities over the year. These achievements included film workshops, public speaking events and inter community football exchanges. This celebration sought to bring together over 100 people from 10 different youth organisations across London.
The event, held at Wembley Stadium featured 125 participants who took part in award ceremony’s, presentations of achievements and even a tour of the world famous venue. The different groups shared stories about their local communities, alleviating previous conceptions about their boroughs and building cohesion between the communities.
The LFJ team intend to keep things going, attracting more participants than last time and expanding as far throughout London as they can.
