Rob's run honours family and departed friends...

(by David Holborn)

Club Chairman Rob successfully completed the Race for Life in aid of Cancer Research recently, raising the  fantastic sum of £600 which with Gift Aid added totalled £731.25. A huge thank you to all of you who contributed to Rob’s effort.

Rob had a very touching message on his shirt as a tribute to our sadly departed friends. I did say to Rob that he would have trouble completing this task being a stranger to running.and it does rather seem from photographic evidence that in an actual running event, he still appears to have two feet on the floor showing his dedication to maintaining Walking Football standards.

As I have said before, Rob devotes a huge amount of time to our Club and we are grateful to those who donated to show gratitude for his efforts and to this very worthy cause.

Falcons donate to KitAid

Chairman Rob Evison recently met with Barrie Neal of the charity KitAid who came down from Chelmsford to collect sets of Falcons’  old long sleeved kits which we had accumulated since 2017. Barrie also received a donation of footballs and other equipment from The Len Forge Centre.


Our kits, bearing the Falcons badge, will now be worn by football lovers in another part of the world. Barrie wrote to thank the club for the donation, saying: “A super quality kit donation from Eastwood Falcons Walking Football Club - massively appreciated. Now beginning a journey to a new part of the world, where the game is loved, but is held back by a lack of access to kit and equipment”


“The Falcons kit donation this week follows over 1 million items of kit donated since KitAid’s formation in 1998.”


“Your donation of kit ensures others get to enjoy a special moment too when they get to wear your colours & Club badge, and though many miles away they will know Eastwood Falcons Walking Football Club, your generosity and commitment to 'spreading smiles for the love of the game.’ “
