KBA Students Feature In Project With Chelsea Football Club And The Paul Canoville Foundation
Thanks to a special collaboration with the Paul Canoville Foundation, KBA students were able to participate in a campaign celebrating Paul Canoville and his legacy with a limited-edition clothing range, launched during Black History Month.
Canoville’s place in Chelsea Football club's history is monumental. As the first Black player in the men’s first team, his endurance began breaking down barriers on the path that led to the diverse Chelsea of today.
Designed in award-winning Nicholas Daley’s signature style, the look draws on the kit Canoville memorably wore as part of a revered promotion-winning side. There is no doubt the description 'iconic' can be applied to one of the most popular Chelsea shirts of all time, and the Tied Together collection updates the fashion for the next generation of change-makers, inspired by the Canoville story.
Launched during Black History Month and available in the Megastore at Stamford Bridge, proceeds from the Tied Together collection will be donated to the Paul Canoville Foundation which supports young people facing adversity and helps them reach their full potential. Specifically, these contributions will go toward the PCF and United Learning initiative, which focuses on enhancing literacy, attendance, and promoting diversity, equality and inclusion in education. Our students were delighted to receive their own jackets as part of their inclusion in the Tied Together campaign.
