Latest TNS FC Foundation Update With Gill Jones – Includes Upcoming Activities

Alongside all the excitement of both the Champions League and Europa League competitions, work in The New Saints FC Foundation continues apace, as we continue to grow and develop our activities and reputation in the community.

As our schools programme draws to an end, we start to ramp up plans for our summer holiday activity programme – this year it is bigger than ever, and runs alongside all those other activities which we continue to deliver throughout the year – including All In – our weekly activity programme for children and young people with additional needs, and our varied programme of exercise and activity sessions for older people.

Below is a summary of our summer activity programme for children and young people – please share this information as widely as possible – we welcome children and young people of all abilities to these sessions, and are extremely grateful to all those funding partners who make the programme possible – young people have no reason to be bored this summer!
