Summer Kicks Asda Funding

This year sees the return of our Summer Kicks project, providing hours of completely free sessions filled with a variety of different sports to participate in every single week!

The project boasts five separate sessions held every week, with four Multi-Sport sessions and one Street Cricket session, formed in partnership with Chance to Shine Street & Street Games. The days & times for these sessions can be found below:

  • Monday – Stanley Sports Hub, 5-6PM, Multi-Sport
  • Wednesday – Mercer Park, Clayton-le-moors, 6-8PM, Multi-Sport
  • Thursday – Hyndburn Park MUGA, BB5 1SY, 6-8PM, Multi-Sport
  • Friday – Stanley Sports Hub, 5-6PM, Multi-Sport
  • Saturday – Hyndburn Park MUGA, 10:30-12PM, Street Cricket

This project would not have been possible without help and the funding and support received from the Asda Foundation which has been a tremendous help, granting us the opportunity to keep providing these sessions for free throughout the summer holidays for young people aged 8 – 17.

Karen Moore, the Community Champion at Accrington Asda, said: “The Asda Foundation are proud to be supporting Accrington Stanley Community Trust with the Summer Kicks project throughout the holidays! The work the Trust do for the local area is essential and being able to work alongside them to ensure young people have the chance to enjoy playing sports without the worry of cost is an opportunity we couldn’t pass up on”.

Lee Walsh, our Head of Sport, said: “We’re all about giving back to the community wherever we can and these Summer Kicks sessions are one of the many ways we do that and thanks to the huge amount of help we’ve had from the Asda Foundation, we can continue to put these sessions on without cost and to the highest standard possible to make sure each session is memorable and enjoyable for those taking part”.

Once again, a massive thankyou to the Asda Foundation for the endless support they’ve given towards making sure this project goes through smoothly and to the highest level we can! We can’t wait to deliver these sessions over the holidays and if you or anyone you know may be interested in coming to any of these sessions, please fill in the form below to let us know!
