We want to make sure we give time, expertise and money to the communities in which we live and work. We have concentrated our efforts in two areas: sporting initiatives that help encourage young people to engage in physical activities that they might not otherwise have access to; fundraising for nominated charities, again through sporting endeavour, sponsorship and collective events. As an example Tangent has sponsored the Basildon Town Pumas Under 11 Football team for the 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 seasons and has sponsored the Forest Glade Under 6 team for the 2016/2017 season.
The Forest Lodge home ground is at Barleylands in Billericay and their website is - http://www.forestgladefc.co.uk/
Forest Glade as a local club run 30+ teams across a range of ages and abilities, ranging from under 5's 'football fun' to over 35 veterans football, and have for the second time been awarded Essex Charter Standard Community Club of the Year, adding to their previous award in 2009. The achievement is particularly notable given the number of community football teams in Essex that qualify for entrance to the award. The club will now be entered into the final round against the winners from other counties.
