The Cheltenham Town Community Trust have been granted three years worth of funding for their latest Premier League project, PL Kicks.
Premier League Kicks allows the Trust to provide free football sessions to young people within our community that not otherwise be able to afford it.
Targeting areas such as Hester's Way and Whaddon, the Trust can help get youth off the streets to engage with them through sport and workshops linking to their GIRL and MENTalk projects.
The PL Kicks project also helps create partnerships with other charities in the community to help widen the reach to young people.
An example of one of these partnerships is with the Cheltenham Trust on their fuel sessions, in which they provide a free meal, games workshops and youth workers - the Community Trust help run their sports.
PL Kicks also run a regional and national tournament where a team will be entered from one of the local sites to represent Cheltenham Town, this will provide a great opportunity for those young people to get out and see other places and have some competitive fun.
Robins first teamers Alex Addai, Josh Debayo and Tahvon Campbell recently visited Whaddon Youth Centre for the launch of PL Kicks at Whaddon Youth Centre, to watch the video please click here.
