MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
Haringey Sports Development last Friday launched an exciting scheme to get young people involved in sports volunteering for the 2012 London Olympic Games.
Lynne Featherstone MP met with the group who are getting ready to do volunteering, learning such talents as first aid, organisational and coaching skills.
Lynne Featherstone comments:
“It’s fantastic to see so many young people willing to give their own time and help out with volunteering. It’s a great opportunity and win-win all round. I have no doubt they will learn skills that will help them in the future. Hats off to them all!”
Burk Gravis from Haringey Sports Development adds:
“Our volunteering projects really work; it’s a good way to get young people off the street, and into sports and volunteering which boosts their confidence and gives them a sense of belonging. Anyone is welcome, so if you’re keen on doing sports, or want to get involved in sports related volunteering, just get in contact.”
