Foundation Friday- New funding for Thorne & Moorends Kicks

27 March 2015

Doncaster Kicks continues to expand.

The Club Doncaster Foundation are delighted to announce that a new Doncaster Kicks session will commence in Thorne from Wednesday 1st April 2015, followed by a session in Moorends, details of which will be confirmed shortly. 


.Following the Foundation being successful in an application to the South Yorkshire Community Foundation, the project will be funded by Eon Tween Bridge Wind Farm Community Fund

 

The funding agreement brings together a partnership including DMBC, IFSS, St Leger Homes, SY Police and Thorne and Moorends Town Council with the Foundation. 


The sessions will take place at MUGA, Wike Gate Road, Thorne and will run every Wednesday evenings 6:30-8pm and will be running all year round as the facility is also floodlit.  


All Kicks programmes are completely free to attend, designed to bring communities together through sport and activities, improving relationships within communities to make the local area a better place. 


Coach Mark Cooper who leads a number of Kicks sessions across Doncaster said: “The aim of these sessions is to give young people something good to do in an evening in a safe and friendly environment.  A lot of the young people that attend our sessions just want somewhere to go in an evening where they can meet up with their mates.”


“When they come down to these sessions they are developing their sport skills and keeping fit, but they also develop as people and young adults.  


“With the sessions being free it gives everyone an opportunity to come down and enjoy themselves.” 


The Foundation is also delighted to announce that because of the funding from Eon Tween Bridge Wind Farm, that the Club Doncaster will shortly be launching a new community project in Moorends, with details in the process of being finalised.
