Hundreds of people attended a special charity event which raised almost £1,000 in memory of an awarding-winning community champion from Wembley.
Children and adults enjoyed the host of fun activities on offer at the ‘Family Fun Day and Fundraiser’ on Sunday, in tribute to Trevor Hutton who died in April aged 52.
Mr Hutton, who was affectionately as ‘Trevor T’, was the co-founder of AFC Wembley, a grassroots football club, and had also previously worked in the music industry and as a PE teacher at Capital City Academy in Doyle Gardens, Willesden.
The event was organised by David Mullings, founder of Father Figure, with proceeds going to Mr Hutton’s last project Community Football Federation (CFF) which he set up with his son Tajean, and the British Heart Foundation (BHF) as he died from heart disease.
Attendees were able to find out more about keeping fit and well through health awareness stalls at the event held at Poplar Grove Youth Centre in Poplar grove, Wembley, which culminated with a football tournament in memory of Mr Hutton.

“Working with Tajean has made me realise that Trevor is still here with us and he really does live on through his son, he has such a wise head on young shoulders.
“On the day we saw almost 700 people come through the door and we managed to raise very close to £1,000.
“I would like thank all those who did come out and we kook forward to building on a solid foundation next year when we continue to highlight issues that affect men and their health as well the memory of Trevor Hutton.”
