Join our Balls to Cancer Ladies team with the “Great Big Green Week”

As a club that have recently signed up to the Birmingham County FA Sustainability Pledge we are requesting your support for the forthcoming Great Big Green Week activity (18-26th Sept) organised by the Climate Coalition 

What is the Great Big Green Week?

The Great Big Green Week will take place 18 – 26 September 2021, and will be the largest event for climate and nature ever seen in the UK.

Thousands of events will celebrate how communities are taking action to tackle climate change and protect green spaces, and encourage others to get involved too. 

Our Event – “Pass” on the Car

As one of the largest County FA’s in the country with upwards of 100,000 people involved in grassroots football on a weekly basis we recognise that travel behaviours form a significant part of an individual’s carbon footprint. 

Through our partners at Pledgeball we plan to encourage all those involved in grassroots football clubs across our region to commit to not using the car for all journeys under 2 miles, with those who have signed the pledge leading by example During the week we want as many participants from our active clubs as possible to use alternative ways to travel to football for example; walking, cycling, running, scooter or skateboard! And to record their actions 

The Ask

Over the build up to the week we would like you to encourage your members via your social channels, newsletters, emails and team WhatsApp groups to register at Pledgeball, recording their commitments on your club account and we can then calculate the Co2e savings, creating a league table that will be shared across our socials & website, with prizes on offer to the winners over the week. We can provide text to help with this.
