Over the past six weeks, The AFC Fylde Community Foundation have been delivering a twice weekly physical activity session, at Pear Tree Specialist School in Kirkham. Working with the senior pupils, and made possible through partnership working with Fylde Council and Lancashire Sport, The AFC Fylde Community Foundation’s Inclusion department have provided a total of 67 young people with the opportunity to take part in the following sporting opportunities;

  • Football
  • Dodgeball
  • Cricket
  • Netball
  • Athletics
  • Wheels for all disability cycling classes
  • Wheel chair basketball
  • Wheel chair football

The AFC Fylde Community Foundation are wholly committed to creating a lasting legacy in the communities we deliver within. As part of this commitment, The Foundation have linked up with a number of volunteer led sports groups, who specifically deliver disability only sports classes. This link up has allowed the participants who are often taking part in some of the sports for the first time, the opportunity to continue participation in the sports they enjoy, creating lasting legacies in the wider community.

The Foundation’s Director, Tom Hutton has been really pleased with the impact this project has had on the participants, and thanked Pear Tree Specialist School for the opportunity to deliver such a fulfilling programme, engaging so many fantastic young people in fun and exciting sports.

Over the next week, The AFC Fylde Community Foundation’s Summer 2015 festival of sport marketing literature will be distributed throughout the Fylde Coast.
