Ebbsfleet United is once again delighted to have supported the Kent African Caribbean Forum’s Celebration of Black History as part of this year’s Black History Month.
Vice chairman Peter Varney attended the celebration at The Woodville Halls, Gravesend, which formed part of a month of celebrations organised in conjunction with Gravesham Borough Council, which have included the Black History Month Exhibition taking place at The Blake Gallery, Woodville Place (which is on-going until 28th October). The theme of Tuesday’ celebrations was “Youth Arising” with drama, dance and music performances from youth groups across the Borough.
The Fleet’s involvement with Black History Month is part of our wider community initiatives aimed at taking the Club into the locality and generating greater exposure and relationships.
Fleet director Stuart Butler-Gallie said, “Once again we’re proud and delighted to sponsor and support the Kent ACF’s Black History Month Gala Event. It was only a pity that this year’s event fell on a “Terror Tuesday” training day which meant that Fleet players could not be present to share with young people from Gravesham their own stories and commitment to their sport.”
