Chester FC Community Trust needs support from Blues fans and the public to help win funding as part of the Aviva Community Fund 2017.
The charity is asking people to vote to help it win funding of up to £10,000 to launch Raise Your Game, a new project providing disadvantaged young people aged 16-25 who are passionate about sport with the skills, qualifications and confidence to be game changers in the community.
Jim Green, chief executive of Chester FC Community Trust, said: “We need as much support as possible from the people of Chester as only those projects with the most votes will become finalists.
“Raise Your Game has the potential to help young men and women who may be disaffected or disadvantaged turn their lives around and express their passion for sport as coaches, gaining new qualifications and life skills, making new friendships and opening doors to employment and education.
“There are young people across the city with the capability to have a really positive impact on their communities and Raise Your Game will support them to realise that potential.
“We need as much help as possible from supporters and the people of Chester to help us reach the final and voting is quick and simple so please submit your votes and encourage your family and friends to do the same.”
