“One of my passions is to support the Mental Health and Wellbeing of everyone who attends or volunteers at Caterham Pumas Youth Football Club.

 

"As we come of out of lockdown we have seen a change in some our children whether that be increased anxiety or lack of confidence on and off of the football pitch. We want to make the children feel like they can talk to any of the volunteers and Committee members. As part of our clubhouse expansion project myself and Jamie Hardgrave want to create a Wellbeing room which will include a sensory area, quiet space and somewhere for the children to talk safely. That is why I was so keen for us to back this campaign and show our support to our mates who may need us to have their backs during these unprecedented times.

 

"We have to teach our children and remind them that it's OK to not be OK and to make time to talk when they need or want to”

 

Holly Basden,

Caterham Pumas Welfare Officer and Social Media Manager

"I was honoured to be asked to come and meet some of the guys at Caterham Pumas. In support of MIND, all the teams this weekend have worn their kit backwards in support of this great charity. 


In the photos you can see me with a youth side, plus I have included some  pictures of me with the Club Chairman Mike, Craig the groundsman (who does a fantastic job keeping the grounds looking so good) and Jamie who is the Development Officer.

 

"Lastly there is picture of me with a player from one of the girls teams and Jacob Basden, who plays for the Under 9s.


"To support this great cause I have worn my kit backwards too."

Caterham on the Hill Parish Councillor
