England star Ellen White has surprised a London based grassroots coaching volunteer with a video call to say ‘thank you' ahead of National Thank You Day on Sunday 4th July.
Eriona Meheti is a coach at Pro Touch Academy, a London-based community sports organisation that provides help, support, and encouragement to potential young, gifted and talented football players. Ellen White showed her thanks to Eriona on behalf of England Senior Women's team, with the video available on England Football Twitter.
The activity was organised by The Football Association as part of their support for the national day of thanks which has been organised by The Together Coalition. The day aims to bring communities together to thank each other and celebrate the community spirit that so many felt during lockdown.
As part of the campaign, four football loving volunteers were recognised after all playing a pivotal role in their communities over a challenging 18 months, dedicating their time to help others. Other volunteers were surprised by Harry Kane, Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling.
Mark Bullingham, The FA CEO and member of the Together Initiative steering group, said: "It's been an extremely challenging 18 months, made more manageable by volunteers throughout the country who have gone and beyond in so many ways. Football has endless examples of players, coaches, staff and fans performing heroics for their community's wellbeing.
"We are proud to be a supporter of National Thank You Day and recognise the importance of taking time to pause, reflect and join together on Sunday 4th July."
