Free sport open to young

First published in

A FREE event aimed at getting youngsters active will activate this Saturday, June 7.

The Apprecia8 Volunteering Event is being organised by The Vale Volunteer Bureau and supported by the charity StreetGames.

It takes place at King Square, on Holton Road, Barry, from 11am to 3pm and is open to anyone aged eight to 24.

Activities include sports, street dancing and information stalls.

Organisers are also hoping to recruit Sports Leaders Volunteers.

Caro Wild, StreetGames Wales manger said: “It’s great to see so many partners working together. Sport has been proven to have so many positive outcomes for individuals and communities and young volunteers are the single most important factor in making a local sports session successful”.

It’s hoped around 100 young people will take part on the day.
