The community arm of Watford Football Club is set to help disabled people get into the game after launching its Every Player Counts campaign.
Funding was provided by the Football Pools, the Hertfordshire FA and Total UK, who donated £60,000, £45,000 and £25,000 respectively.
As part of the scheme, the trust will deliver a three-year scheme to develop football opportunities for people with disabilities, to help develop players, provide opportunities for general participation and offer the chance to pursue a career in the sport.
The donation from Total, based in Clarendon Road, follows the recent two-year extension agreement of its sponsorship of the trust.
Claire Elliot, CSR, sponsorship and events executive for Total UK, said: "We are very excited about the Every Player Counts campaign and are delighted to be able to help with the funding of such a deserving project.
"The trust works towards being at the heart of the community and Total is proud to be working with them to achieve this. We also look forward to implementing more exciting new community projects in the future."
