Barrack Charitable Trust pledge money towards Streetsport

The Barrack Charitable Trust has donated £10,000 towards the Denis Law Legacy Trust’s Streetsport programme.

The funds will go directly towards funding the Kickstart wing of Streetsport which delivers activity sessions to Primary 6 and 7 pupils in local schools.

Bobby Anderson of the Barrack Charitable Trust attended a recent Kickstart session with Denis Law Legacy Trust chairman Graham Thom to present the cheque and see more of what goes on.

Hosted by Walker Road Primary School in Torry, almost 60 young participants took part in all. The Streetsport team were also at Tullos Primary School the previous day and entertained almost 90 school children with a range of varied and fun activities.

James Barrack, founder of the Barrack Charitable Trust, praised the “high impact” that Kickstart sessions have in Aberdeen.

He said: “The Streetsport programme has had a great impact on the city of Aberdeen and its children.

“Since 2006, it has made visible improvement in getting kids involved in sport and helping them become responsible citizens within their local communities.

“By continuing to donate and support this programme, we hope this helps to ensure that the charity can continue with the excellent work it has been doing for the city.”

The Denis Law Legacy Trust would like to thank the Barrack Charitable Trust for their loyal and continued sport.

Streetsport COO, Mark Williams, said: “Thanks to the Barrack Charitable Trust we can look forward to working with over 1,000 children a year from areas of Aberdeen that need this support the most.”
