To help children stay off the streets and use their time to engage in sports activities to keep active.
The funding was used to purchase PPE and hand sanitiser to allow their young people’s projects to continue safely during the summer and autumn of 2020.
The 3 project leaders were aged 17-18 and wanted to give local children a safe space to take part in something positive and sport being at the forefront of this.
The project helped 50 children stay off the streets and instead use their time to engage in sports to keep active during the pandemic.
