We’ve teamed up with the Active Communities Network in Northern Ireland to help young people gain key skills through sport and work placements.
The Asda Foundation has supported the programme with a £600,000 grant to fund a series of “Sports hubs” in deprived areas. This month we were delighted to launch the first of these at Youth Sports Omagh to help young people in the Fermanagh and Omagh District Council areas. The launch event included a fun 5-a-side football tournament for local children. Colleagues from our stores in Northern Ireland will also be volunteering their time to support the programme.Read more
