Local teams from Bexhill took part in a football tournament organised by Albion in the Community earlier this month, to mark World Mental Health Day.

The six-a-side Mental Health Awareness tournament brought together 150 participants involved in AITC’s mental wellbeing football sessions and from community schemes across England.

The Fair play was awarded to Bexhill’s Lawn Court teams pictured with Paul Brackley AITC’s Community Sport Manager, American Express volunteers and Albion’s Jesse Starkey and Robin Deen.

The event was supported by American Express volunteers who helped with logistics and refereed matches alongside AITC coaches.
