Grant gives Carbrain sporting boost

10 May 2016

A North Lanarkshire charity is set to help Cumbernauld kids learn life and sports skills.

DJ Sports Coaching is training local volunteers to deliver free activity sessions in Carbrain.

A grant award from local housing provider Sanctuary made the sessions possible. Mentor support will ensure the volunteers’ skills stay in Carbrain long after the Sanctuary grant is spent.

DJ Sports Coaching’s David Kennedy said: “The club encourages children and young people to participate in a positive experience, rather than roam the streets.

“We work with the North Lanarkshire Partnership to ensure we meet the needs of local people, develop the health of the community, and work towards the regeneration of Carbrain.”

The sessions will be held at Carbrain Primary School, every Monday during the school year, from 6pm-7pm. Those aged seven and above can take part in fun activities including football, archery and sumo suit wrestling.

Anyone interested should simply turn up to the first session on Monday (16th May). For more information email David at djcoaching@yahoo.co.uk or phone 07468 592776
