The Guy Mascolo Football Charity partnered with BedHead Football Club in late 2011 when BHFC faced closure.
By subsidising players so that fees could remain affordable for
all kids in the local area BHFC could continue providing top class football coaching for the community. Since the initial support, GMFC has continued to subsidise BHFC’s players and now owns all shares in the club.
It funds approximately 30% of club players with partial support or full sponsorship depending on the individual’s situation. GMFC also utilises BHFC as it’s delivery arm for all the charity’s football coaching programmes (ie. Street FC, In-Schools, Goal Getter & BH Ladies).
The Guy Mascolo Football Charity was set up in 2011 in memory of Guy Mascolo by brothers Anthony & Bruno Mascolo and Guy’s wife, Flora Mascolo.
The charity was set up to help disadvantaged kids in South London.
Guy Mascolo 1944 – 2009
Guy Mascolo was one of the founders of the successful Toni & Guy hairdressing group.
Guy spent his teenage years living in Clapham and was a keen footballer, spending much of his free time kicking a ball around the parks of South London.
Three-time winner of the prestigious British Hairdresser of the Year and London Hairdresser of the Year awards, Anthony’s extensive experience in the industry and award-winning career have been major factors in the success of Toni & Guy.
Sadly Anthony’s brother, Guy passed away in 2009. In his memory, Anthony Mascolo, brother Bruno Mascolo Guy’s wife, Flora Mascolo created the Guy Mascolo Football Charity.
The overall vision of The Guy Mascolo Football Charity’s Projects is developing the potential of young people to achieve better life outcomes and create a positive impact on their families, schools and communities.
Through the camaraderie and fun of Football we are able to engage our youth and support them with their specific needs physically, mentally and emotionally.
All projects run annually from September to August with additional activities or tournaments over the Half Term and Summer breaks.
