Presentation day fun at Honiton FC
Honiton Football Club Annual Presentations event saw trophies and prizes awarded to coaches and players in all age groups for their achievements throughout the year.
At the event, Richard Harris, of Honiton Garage and To An Fro Vehicle Hire, presented cheques
totalling £200 to the Under-9s for sponsorship of trophies and medals for the 2010 season and for other club funds.
This year, Honiton Garage staff have been keenly following the World Cup with an impressive display of flags of the world cup teams flying at the Turks Head and have been collecting old football shirts for a ‘football shirts amnesty’ run by Conoco Phillips (Jet). The recycled shirts have been sent to Africa and distributed to footballers of all ages, unable to afford European prices. A total of 80 football
shirts were sent from the people of Honiton to add to those collected by Jet across the UK.
