07 Sep RECENT EVENTS WITH AWARDS FOR ALL FUNDING
Recently two events have taken place which have been delivered through the Awards for All Lottery Funding.
The first was the Summer World Cup which was held on Bank Holiday Monday.
WWSET delivered a World Cup Tournament at Cressex Astroturf whilst also working in partnership with local charity group. The tournament was designed for young people and young adults in the local community to get out, socialise, have fun, exercise, keep fit and play some football.
We had approximately 200 people between 8 and 25 years old from all communities and backgrounds. They arrived at Cressex Astroturf for a number of reasons including to participate, help, volunteer, watch, support and socialise.
Volunteers from the local community did a BBQ for all the attendees, with local businesses donating drinks, cakes and food for the event.
The second event was our Wembley Tour which took place on Tuesday 1st September.
WWSET organised to take a group of young children and some parents from the targeted areas of the local community to Wembley for a tour of the stadium. Shortly before the young children returned to school, it was a celebration to end the summer break.
For the majority of the participants, it was the first time they had gone to Wembley Stadium. It was a fantastic day for all and the joy on the faces of the young people and their excitement was evident as soon as we approached the stadium via the coach which was funded by the Awards for All funding.
