Taylor, a Reds in the Community Participant is heading to Wembley after being nominated by RitC Staff. Taylor will receive two tickets, a private stadium tour and food vouchers to spend at one of the Stadium Vendors. All courtesy of The EFL. 

Travel arrangements have been provided thanks to a generous donation from a fellow football fan John Mills. Wanting to help he made the donation and covered the cost of a coach to and from Wembley for Taylor and her guests

Dealing with situations that no young person should have to deal with at a young age, Taylor began attending coaching sessions and soccer camps at Reds in the Community to help with her Mental Health and self-confidence. Since then, Taylor has gained both confidence and excellent footballing skills, she has a great relationship with the coaches and staff and is overall a delight to work with.

Taylor’s Auntie Tracy added: ‘I couldn’t believe it when I got the call from Amy at Reds in the Community to tell me Taylor would be receiving this fantastic opportunity, I was driving home from work, and I cried the entire journey’

Taylor’s Uncle added: ‘I am lost for words at the generosity to make this happen, this is an experience Taylor will never forget and I send out so much gratitude to everyone that made this happen.’

Head of Foundation at Reds in the Community Kieron Campbell said: ‘I would like to thank the EFL for giving us the opportunity to make this happen. Seeing Taylor’s reaction reminds me of why we do what we do within the Barnsley Community. A well deserving participant and an experience to remember’ 

Everyone at Reds in the Community and Barnsley FC hope that Taylor has a fantastic time and we will catch-up with her soon to hear all about it! 

Barnsley FC take on Sheffield Wednesday on Monday in the EFL League One Play-Off Final at Wembley Stadium.

Come on You Reds!
