The charity, based in Battersea Park Road, needs help raising funds during the Big Give Christmas Challenge, which kicks off November 28 and runs until midday on December 5.
The Guy Mascolo Football Charity helps 1,500 disadvantaged young people every year with a range of complex needs, such as homelessness, poverty and gang violence, using the engagement tool of football and offers support, pathways and opportunities for their young people.
Through the Big Give, the Childhood Trust selected them for match finding due to the charity’s role in tackling childhood poverty.
Errol Bignal, GMFC director, said: “A lot of young people we work with can be easily influenced into negative experiences and our social inclusion programmes delivered on the local estates work to give them the support they need to make more positive life choices. This is only one example of the work we do within our local community.”
