Notts County Foundation appoints new trustee to board

Local charity Notts County Foundation has appointed Raj Randhawa to its board of trustees.

Quoting a passion for harnessing the power of football to drive positive social change, Raj started his career as an education officer at Newcastle United Football Club’s academy, after which he took on the head of community role at the Lincoln City Foundation in October 2017.

Raj currently holds the position of northern grassroots officer at Kick It Out – English football’s equality and inclusion organisation, where he works alongside the Football Association (FA) to identify and support the needs of local clubs.

Raj said: “I am delighted to have joined Notts County Foundation’s board of trustees at what is a really exciting period of growth for the charity. Football is a vehicle for change and can be used to positively impact the lives of people from all walks of life.

“My belief is that Community Club Organisations (CCO’s) play an invaluable part in transforming local communities, and I look forward to supporting the direction and development of Notts County Foundation’s programmes across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.”

In addition to his role at Kick It Out, Raj offers consultative services with a focus on education, diversity, and inclusion and anti-discrimination governance to grassroots football clubs and organisations.

Sam Crawford, head of business development at Notts County Foundation, said: “Everyone at Notts County Foundation is thrilled to welcome Raj to the board of trustees. It goes without saying but Raj’s experience and expertise will be fundamental to the development of the charity throughout 2022, especially in relation to our commitment to providing equal opportunities for everyone in our local community. I am very much looking forward to working alongside Raj and formally welcoming his to Notts County Foundation.”

Raj added: “I am so proud of the work that Notts County Foundation do for all throughout the city and county across its five ‘SHINE’ areas – sport participation, health and wellbeing, inclusion, national citizen service, and education. Having dedicated a large portion of my career to working for community-focussed organisations and charities, I appreciate and understand how valuable charities like Notts County Foundation are.”
