CPTED-UK are proud to sponsor the Calverton Miners Welfare Football Club under 7s. The club looks back at nearly 70 years of football history linked to the Calverton Colliery in Nottinghamshire. Calverton provides coaching and competitive football for all ages, genders and abilities. It’s the first time the club formed a team for boys under 7 years old. The club also provides activities for girls and boys with disabilities covering cerebral palsy, hearing and sight impairment, Asperger, autism and learning difficulties.
By sponsoring the Calverton Miners Welfare FC CPTED-UK hope to support the club in bringing the communities together and ensuring that physical activities are available for all without leaving anybody behind.
According to Sport England there are currently seven million children aged five to 15 in England and more than half are not doing the recommended daily amount of exercise. Positive experiences at an early age help build the foundations for an active life. Building positive attitudes to sport and activity is one of the issues being tackled in the Sport England Uniting the Movement strategy.
Dan Moore, Calverton under 7s coach said: “We are extremely grateful to CPTED-UK for their generous sponsorship funding that has ensured all our team have access to a brand new playing kit for the seasons ahead. The team certainly look the part in their blue and white hoops!”
Sport England work in collaboration with the Design Council, together they’ve launched the Ideas to Action initiative that seeks new ways to overcome inequalities in physical activity.
