Holbeck Moor JFC supports Leeds Youth Justice Service

At Holbeck Moor JFC we do many things to support the community from making football affordable for all to donating gifts to the local primary school to, on this occasion, recieving a request from the Leeds Youth Justice Service and supporting the request.

They wanted to help a family with two children with a donation of two footballs and a football goal for the garden. This would then mean that the children could be more active in a safe environment of their own back garden playing the beautiful game. And we were more than happy to oblige and support.

Leeds Youth Justice Service had this to say:

” I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for your recent donation of a football net and two footballs for children we are currently working with. We delivered and built these and they were greatly appreciated by the family.

“This has meant the children can now spend more time together in the safety of their own garden, and will greatly encourage them to use their time positively outdoors. This has such a huge impact on the future of these children, and has now given them a positive activity to focus their time on.

“Football is not just about the sport that is played on the pitch, it gives children a sense of belonging, goals (in both senses of the word!), improves their mental health and wellbeing, positive and constructive use of spare time and building positive peer relationships. All of this has such a huge impact on the work we do with children, and thanks to the donation from Holbeck Moor FC, they’re making that happen.”
