Yesterday’s football in the park session brought together outsiders, new faces and regulars at Justlife. 8 people joined Matt, project worker and Legs, volunteer for a football game in the local park. The game lasted over 2 hours and saw people really come together.
Matt said: “The team spirit was amazing. People that don’t normally talk to each other were on the same team and really working together. There was a great atmosphere and everyone had a really positive attitude. It was a great way to get people talking, as well as make the most of the good weather and play some sport.
One particular client has been on the outside for a while, with no one really making the effort to talk to him, but this morning when he walked in the door there was a big cheer from the football lads and the positivity carried on throughout the drop in this morning. It is great to see people coming together despite their differences.
I am really looking forward to next week’s game and I think everyone else is too.”
