Hull City's George Honeyman has received the PFA's Community Champion award for his continued work with the Tigers Trust during the 2021/22 season.
The midfielder has often attended our Tigers Together sessions, which provide a safe space to play football for those who are looking to improve their mental wellbeing.
Speaking on the importance of these sessions for the community, Honeyman said: “Sessions like this are incredibly important to the community. There’s a great togetherness and everyone here is smiling. For the Trust to put on something like this every Monday, it almost gives people a home after a home. This is amazing work that everyone at the Tigers Trust is doing.”
Thank you to George for his fantastic work with the Trust, you make a huge difference to the Hull and East Yorkshire community and we are incredbily grateful for everything that you do.
John Hudson, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility at the PFA, said: “The PFA has been immensely proud of the outstanding efforts of players during a very difficult season once again and we feel they should be recognised for their support and involvement in the local community. The Award will hopefully raise awareness of the importance many of our members attach to their roles off the pitch and highlight their commitment to support those most in need during the pandemic. We would like to offer our congratulations to this season’s recipient of the 2021/22 PFA Community Champion Award.”
