Hagan Homes and the Greater Village Regeneration Trust (GVRT), an urban regeneration charity based in the Village area of South Belfast, recently teamed up to deliver a week- long football blitz programme for 30 local young people.
The Greater Village Regeneration Trust delivers programmes to improve the quality of life for local residents. It seeks to build community cohesion by addressing housing issues, educational under- achievement, unemployment, health and well-being concerns and by increasing cultural understanding.
Discussing the Football Blitz programme, which was held at Blythefield 3g facility at the end of July, Angela Johnston from GVRT said:
“We would like to thank Hagan Homes for providing funding to support this football programme, which engaged 30 local young people aged between five and 11 years old.
“The daily routine with our coaching staff started with football skills, games and ended with football matches. Every child received a medal and a trophy with special trophies for a cross bar challenge and best helpers.”
