At St Matthew's Big Local we are committed to inclusion and we are constantly working hard to provide opportunities to everyone. We are particularly proud of a project that we have been running this year funded by Sport England we now have 10 committed volunteers who are running sports sessions with their community. The programme has broken down barriers and helped people have healthier and happier lives. The global pandemic had raised challenges but with the dedication of the coaching staff and volunteers this project has been a massive success. We now need to find significant funding for the project to continue and developed in 2021. Please get in touch if you can help support this wonderful project.
