Owls celebrate EFL Week of Action

15 November 2023

Last week marked the EFL Week of Action, a national campaign aiming to showcase the fantastic community work undertaken by all 72 Football League clubs across England and Wales.

To celebrate the campaign, Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme hosted a variety of projects across the week.

Owls pair Di'Shon Bernard and Michael Smith visited King Edward VII School for a Q&A session with children involved in SWFCCP's SAFE Mentoring project, an initiative to support vulnerable young people at risk of exclusion.


Our Under-18s squad attended the Community Programme's Alternative Provision students, where they engaged in the 'Walk a Mile with Wednesday' wellbeing project, which involves walking one mile around the Hillsborough pitch each week to enhance both mental and physical health.

Will Vaulks and Bambo Diaby honed their gardening skills at Hillsborough Primary, where they helped the non-profit organisation ‘Kids Plant Trees’ rejuvenate the school's green space. There were smiles all round and the school is thrilled with the transformation!


Lee Gregory and Reece James paid a visit to Fox Hill Primary School, where the children had the opportunity to display their best tricks and goal celebrations during an indoor football game.

Finally, members of SWFCCP's Owls in Force session attended local primary schools for a special assembly, where they highlighted the importance of remembrance ahead of Remembrance Day.
