Albion Foundation's New Partnership with SMILE Education


Albion Foundation's New Partnership with SMILE Education

Rich Holmes, School Partnerships Manager: “It’s great to be able to partner with SMILE Education to add value to our existing delivery with partner schools. We will be working with SMILE to deliver competitions and teacher CPD workshops in line with our WBA One Offer and Premier League Primary Stars provision with schools & teachers, and look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship between the two organisations.”

SMILE Education released the following statement:

"We chose to partner with the The Albion Foundation as we felt that their values aligned, as they are just as passionate about supporting their local community and the children within it as we are. 

Ultimately, however, it was their goal to deliver 10 million hours and make a difference to 100,000 lives in the next 10 years that really struck a chord with us. We felt that this was something we wanted to be a part of, something we wanted to help them achieve.

From that Smile Soccer Stars was born, and the team at the Albion Foundation have been instrumental in bringing this event to life both virtually and face-to-face - an event that is already changing lives. 

We look forward to working with them for years to come and helping them achieve their goals one school football tournament at a time."
