The New Saints FC Community Foundation is asking for your support to help them win a share of TESCO’s Bags of Help prize fund.
If successful, the money will be used to provide a weekly one hour sports session for young people in Welshpool, with the project being overseen by a partnership of the TNS FC Foundation, Powys Youth Services and Welshpool Football Club.
The aim will be to offer young people structured sports participation activities where they’ll receive coaching to help develop their footballing skills, with the overall aim being to encourage them to join and play regularly with their local grassroots football club, either Welshpool Town FC or Welshpool Ladies FC.
The project has been running in the town for the last year, thanks to funding received from the Welsh Football Trust, and it’s proved extremely successful in engaging disengaged teenage girls in positive sports activities.
If you would like to support the TNS FC Foundation in the Bags of Help competition, voting opens in the Welshpool TESCO store on Friday (March 1), and you can cast your vote using the token you are given each time you shop.
All you need to do is deposit your token into the Welshpool youth activities box, then the box with the most tokens when the voting closes will bag the top prize.
The winning project will receive £4,000, with £2,000 and £1,000 being awarded to second and third place respectively.
