Charity Presentations 2020

Dear Charities at  PRISM,  Shrewsbury Foodbank (Barnabas Community Projects), Shropshire SANDS, Bradbury House (Action for Children). Thank you for the good work you’re all doing and trust you’re keeping safe and well in these difficult times with the Coronavirus and as it is for those who you are helping.

I’m Chairman of the Shropshire Junior Football League and, whilst all grassroots football is closed  for the foreseeable future,  we’ve issued an Open Statement – End Of Season 2019-20 which you can follow at  and one of the agreed commitments  is to the  league’s Charity Fund. This Fund is made up of team entry fees, donations and reserves and  SJFL has agreed for each charity to receive £500 making a total donation of £2000. Since the new millennium the league has now raised over £32000 & gifted 69 charities. Whilst we can’t do official presentations we’re going to do virtual cheque donations. We’ll download  all the respective logos with a meet the team photos and a presentation cheque to make  a virtual photo call.

When grassroots football reopens we’d like to invite you to one of the league’s events so all your good work can be formally recognised.

I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for the excellent community work you all do.

Keep safe keep well.

Best regards

Mike Hames

Bradbury House Shrewsbury – Children and young people

Every child should grow up safe and happy.

That’s why we provide support to help them thrive – and step in to help when times get tough.

This means protecting the vulnerable from neglect and abuse.

It means supporting young people who are homeless and those who care for others. It’s finding safe and loving homes, and giving children a voice by campaigning for something better. It also means being there when the unexpected happens.

Who do we care for?

  • Age range: 0-17   
  • Area covered:  Children and young people who live in Shropshire and the surrounding area.  
  • Disability:  all children and young people have a learning, and/or multiple disability, but may also have additional needs including sensory disability, health needs, physical disability, challenging behaviour, communication disorders, attention and conduct disorders or mental health needs. 
  • We will provide short breaks seven days per week.
