Grassroots Project of the Year 2020
The 2020 winner was the Forget Me Not FC project run by Mick Harvey (who was recently a recipient of the FA 50-Year Long Service Award in a secret ceremony) and his team at Uxbridge Amblers Walking Football Club. The project used the power of football to provide a release and an opportunity to meet for those with dementia and for those who care for them.
