Try this modified code:
Sub ClearChangeSummary()
'When the targets have been uploaded to CV, the admin will use this
'button to clear out uploaded amendments/additions

    Dim Lastrow As Integer
    
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Sheets("Change Summary").Select
    ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:="football"
    
    Range(Range("A2"), Range("L" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)).Copy _
        Sheets("Log").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1)
    
    Lastrow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
    Range("A2:L2" & Lastrow).ClearContents
    ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="football"
    
    Sheets("Admin").Select
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

To be a little more hidden, you could create a string variable with the password and store it in another module.
