OUR STORIES: ERIN GETTING HER KICKS

The Foundation of Light’s Premier League Kicks project has given one youngster in particular just the boost she needed, as well as helping her support her friends and family.

At 13-year-old, Erin attended our course at Consett as she looked for ways to fill in her time after school – with her desire to try new things she quickly made an impact on the sessions.

“I got involved as I wanted to do something on an evening after school,” Erin explained.

After her first session, Erin noticed that it was all boys in attendance and felt she wanted to get more girls involved and suggested introducing dance and drama.

As a result, an art club was introduced as well as a homework club and before long, numbers were increasing as more and more youngsters were taking part and Erin’s enthusiasm was rubbing off on them.

“I used to be shy around people I didn’t know,” Erin admitted.

“But since I started volunteering with Kicks, I now have the confidence to get involved with people much more – I now lead some of the sessions and now the other kids in the group come to me when they need support or advice.”

Erin enjoyed her time with the Foundation of Light so much, when she was old enough she then became a member of the team, helping out at Kicks and Mini Kicks sessions.

The Premier League Kicks programme provides free sessions where young people can engage in positive activities, whether that be in sport, music, art or just socialising.

Watch Erin’s story below. For more feel-good Foundation stories subscribe to our YouTube channel.
