Mixed Gender Fixture
Monday 2nd May 2022
Kick Start FC are pleased to announce that they will be hosting another mixed gender friendly fixture. Next week is 'Mental Health Awareness Week' and takes place between the 9th-15th of May 2022. To raise awareness, a variety of Kick Start FC participants have been invited to take part in this friendly fixture.
The theme for this years 'Mental Health Awareness Week' is loneliness. Loneliness is affecting more and more of us in the UK and has had a huge impact on our physical and mental health during the pandemic. Over 60% of adults said their mental health worsened in 2021 due to loneliness. Our connection to other people and our community is fundamental to protecting our mental health and we need to find better ways of tackling the epidemic of loneliness. We can all play a part in this.
"Our mixed gender friendlies are a great way for us to shine a spotlight on the work that we do within Kick Start and it's a way of showing others in our local community that they are not alone. Having this fixture played during mental health awareness week will hopefully help raise awareness of loneliness in others and to encourage people to reach out for support." - Michael Cunningham (Founder of Kick Start FC)
Please come along and show support for everyone involved in the fixture and to learn more about the way Kick Start FC play football.
