Sleepout for Street Soccer
We are delighted to support the work of Street Soccer in Maidstone and they are organising a sleep out in January at Maidstone United to raise awareness of homelessness in the town and more broadly across Kent www.streetsoccersleepout.co.uk
The partnership between The Stones' Community Trust and The Street Soccer Foundation sees the two charitable organisations run the nationally acclaimed 'Street Soccer Academy' programme, which specifically supports homeless and vulnerable young people with a 10-week coaching and development course: ultimately to help participants move into work, education or further training, to improve their life and prospects.
The Sleepout event will take place from 7pm until 7am with a target of £10,000 to be raised from the local community, to help tackle homelessness by funding a full Academy supporting up to 15 young people.
A team from Gullands including Tim Simmons, Lizzie Smith and Hardeep will join them for the sleep out.
Gullands Partner David Brown was recently interviewed by Street Soccer’s founder Keith Mabbutt about Gullands’ support for their work and he also put his footballing skills to the test…..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeeLgwt5bKo
