One Year On – London Biggin Hill Airport and Bromley FC Partnership

Last year London Biggin Hill Airport became the lead partner for the Bromley Football Club Community Trust’s Women & Girls’ Community Provision, with the aim to increase female participation in football within the Bromley community.

Twelve months on and we are delighted to announce an update on the progress that the Community Trust has made, with the support of London Biggin Hill Airport. Our aim remains to ensure football is accessible to all, and encourage a clear and inclusive pathway for anyone who wants to start playing, both recreationally and competitively, whilst also empowering strong community leaders.

Andrea Ellis, Head of Women and Girls’ said “It has been a busy 12 months. We have seen a significant increase in female participation across all ages and areas of the game, with a range of new and exciting projects. We thank London Biggin Hill Airport as our lead partner who have supported us in delivering football for all in the last 12 months”.

David Winstanley, CEO of London Biggin Hill Airport added “London Biggin Hill Airport is passionate about being a good neighbour, so we are proud to support the Trust as it breaks down barriers and creates opportunities for women and girls of every age and background. This is an ethos shared by the Airport, which aims to inspire young people who may not have considered a career in aviation or engineering, through our work with STEM outreach, Futures Week and work experience. Both sport and aviation share values of teamwork, communication and dedication, so we hope our synergy and continued partnership with Bromley FC Community Trust will enable us to create more opportunities, diversity and inclusivity, both in our local community and wider industries.
